Canadian Manufacturing Week (CMW) is a comprehensive showcase of industrial support products and services taking place in Toronto this fall. The show will be located at the International Centre, and runs for three days, from Sept. 28 to Sept. 30.

Held every two years in Toronto, CMW encompasses three separate events — the Plant Equipment Maintenance show, the Design Engineering & OEM show, the Facilities Maintenance show, and the Supply Chain Management show.

The event attracted 750 exhibitors and about 5,800 visitors when it was last held in 2002. Attendees stated that their primary reasons for attending the show were to get information on new products and services, to seek out new suppliers and to network with colleagues. According to Art Wanuch of MC Lights, CMW was “a great opportunity to refresh contacts and keep pace with what is new in the industry.” Carroll Macintosh of Evergreen Juices Inc. said “We found two pieces of equipment we were looking for.”

CMW offers manufacturing decision-makers displays of a wide range of technology, products, ideas and innovations for all aspects of industrial operations. This comprehensive event allows buying teams to shop under one roof in a comprehensive industrial marketplace.


The Plant Equipment Maintenance show will include products, services, maintenance software and equipment essential to preventive and strategic maintenance for the continuation of production in manufacturing and assembly plants and facilities.

The Design Engineering & Original Equipment Manufacturing (OEM) event will provide comprehensive information, software, technology and trends for design engineering and original equipment manufacturing of discrete parts and industrial systems in all industries.

The Facility Maintenance section will feature products and supplies for the operation and maintenance of manufacturing plants, institutional buildings and municipal facilities, with solutions to help industrial managers meet the challenges of running and operating a competitive industrial facility.

Finally, the Supply Chain Management area will offer solutions for all supply chain needs, including materials handling, packaging for distribution, transportation, information technology and specialized logistics.

New this year for CMW will be two co-located events, Weld Expo Canada and Finishing Expo Canada. Weld Expo has served Canada’s welding community since 1986, and is the country’s largest exhibition of equipment, machinery, products and services for the welding industry. Finishing Expo is the only trade event in Canada dedicated to equipment, products, supplies and services for coating and finishing of metal, wood and plastics.

CMW is sponsored by the Canadian Fluid Power Association (CFPA), the Plant Engineering & Maintenance Association of Canada (PEMAC), the Power Transmission Distributors Association (PTDA) and Supply Chain & Logistics Canada (SCL). Weld Expo is sponsored by the Canadian Welding Association (CWA), while Finishing Expo is held in conjunction with Coatings Magazine.
