What is a Supercluster?

The Advanced Manufacturing Supercluster is founded on the principle that the transformation to advanced manufacturing will enrich the lives of all Canadians, delivering better products and good jobs while generating the economic growth that is essential to building a better world.


The Supercluster will leverage Canada’s technology and industrial strengths to accelerate the development, adoption, and scale-up of world-leading capabilities in Canadian manufacturing.


Our aim is to strengthen the competitiveness of Canada’s manufacturing sector, drive more innovation and investment in advanced manufacturing technologies in Canada, generate new commercial opportunities
for Canadian companies in global markets, grow more large-scale world-leading Canadian enterprises, and develop a modern and inclusive workforce with the skills required to excel in advanced manufacturing today and in the future. By combining Canada’s manufacturing and technology strengths, and facilitating access to supporting infrastructure and services, the Supercluster aims to achieve exponential benefits for Canadian industry and the Canadian economy as a whole.
