This role is remote but for Quebec residents who are either bilingual or native only.
Next Generation Manufacturing Canada (“NGen”) is the industry-led not-for-profit organization that leads the Canadian government’s ambitious investment in the Advanced Manufacturing Supercluster, matching federal funds and private investments to industry-led projects.
We promote technology adoption, skills improvements and greater collaboration between technology and manufacturing to help Canadian companies of all sizes navigate the global shift to advanced manufacturing. We use data to link companies, researchers, and investors so they can work together to invent new products or processes. NGen is a proud member of a national network of five Canadian, industry-led innovation superclusters.
By 2023, the federal government has committed to investing up to $950 million in its five superclusters to drive major economic, social, and industrial benefits for the country. The Government allocated an additional $750 million to the Supercluster program in its 2022 budget.
NGen celebrates Canada’s diversity and is committed to creating an equitable and inclusive work environment for all employees. We value working with talented individuals from all backgrounds because we believe that diversity promotes innovation and collaboration. NGen’s employees are selected on the basis of merit, qualifications, and business needs. Our strength as a team is based on mutual respect for each and every employee. Everyone is welcome in building a stronger advanced manufacturing sector in Canada.
There are three different areas of Contracting at NGen: Projects, Programs, and general business operations. The Contracting department is responsible for leading the process in all three different areas as described above.
With respect to projects, NGen provides companies with opportunities to apply for funding to develop collaborative R&D projects in a manufacturing setting. Once projects apply, assessed, and selected, they enter a Contracting Phase. The Contracting Phase is in the project development stage, where legal and project definition occurs. This phase requires high levels of collaboration among internal staff and project teams to provide appropriate feedback and sign-offs. The Contracting requirements for projects include, but are not limited to, an extensive project plan outlining specific deliverables, as well as reviewing and executing legal agreements that outline the terms and conditions of the funding. The Contracting process is imperative in nature and presents new challenges requiring individuals to think outside the box.
Programs include curated skills development courses and management training with an emphasis on advanced manufacturing.
General Business Operations include activities that NGen engages in to operate its business.
Supporting the Contracts Manager and VP of IP and Contracts with the processes and procedures that are associated with the Project Contracting Phase (as mentioned above) of our funding challenges. This includes:
