The manufacturing sector in Canada is currently facing challenges due to recession, global economic uncertainty, political instability, climate change, automation, oil prices and the weak Canadian dollar. Rising prices on resources, shifts in demand and skilled labour shortages have forced manufacturers to adapt their processes to continue in these uncertain times.

Many manufacturing companies have been investing in new technologies, and have started to change their focus to improving methods and operational efficiency. Some companies have even opted to outsource regular processes to foreign partners, while others have placed efforts on domestic production and reorganization.

With all these changes, it is vital to have a team behind you that understands what drives your business and can help you respond to these new opportunities. Our Manufacturing group provides services and support to manufacturers in Alberta, NWT, Nunavut and Yukon in many areas, including corporate, real estate, dispute resolution, product liability, intellectual property and labour and employment.
