The Government of Saskatchewan has proclaimed November 23-27, 2020, Saskatchewan Manufacturing Week, celebrating the innovative, entrepreneurial and competitive manufacturers that call the province home.

In 2019, Saskatchewan’s manufacturing industry had $16.3 billion in sales and provided $5.5 billion in total exports.  The overall sector represented 5.6 per cent of the provincial gross domestic product.  For every dollar invested in manufacturing, an economic spin off of three times is generated in the provincial economy.

“As a major wealth-generator and significant driver of the provincial economy, we’re proud of our manufacturing sector here in Saskatchewan,” Trade and Export Development Minister Jeremy Harrison said.  “Manufacturing Week is a great opportunity to profile the technologies, innovations and management tools for the ongoing success and growth of the industry.”
