A technology-driven mission to make Canada a global leader in advanced manufacturing.

Manufacturing has been a cornerstone of economic growth in Canada. Now our manufacturers must be at the forefront of technological change to grow and compete globally.

NGen helps Canadian manufacturers and technology companies – big and small – navigate the global shift to advanced manufacturing.

NGen is a connector, linking companies, researchers and investors.

And we’re the engine of the Canadian government’s major investment in the Advanced Manufacturing Supercluster.

As an industry-led, not-for-profit organization, NGen will:

  • Build a platform to connect Canadian manufacturers, technology providers, schools, government and business networks engaged in advanced manufacturing, accelerating the diffusion of new technologies and processes.
  • Facilitate access to public funding and private investments for technology adoption and scale-up initiatives, including through the federal government’s Advanced Manufacturing Supercluster.
  • De-risk adoption and scale-up for smaller manufacturing and technology companies.
  • Strengthen public awareness of the importance of advanced manufacturing to Canada’s prosperity and of the world-leading technologies and skills developed here.
  • Advise and advocate for the skills development, intellectual property protections, environmental benefits and competitive advantages of advanced manufacturing.
