On July 10th, 2020, the Ontario government announced the launch of Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters (CME) Ontario Made program to promote the many world-class goods that are made across the province by helping consumers easily identify, access and purchase local products.
"Ontario manufacturers have a long and proud history of making some of the most innovative products in the world. As consumers increasingly want to buy local, it's important that we help them make informed decisions and find local manufacturers," said Dennis Darby, President & CEO, Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters (CME). "We want to encourage Ontario manufacturers to proudly wave the flag by labeling their products and buying local where possible. Ontario Made will help raise awareness of what is manufactured right here by our neighbours, friends, and families and support local manufacturing."
