Canada’s manufacturing sector to be growing significantly with AI and robotics

It was recently reported that Canada’s manufacturing sector is quickly switching to advanced manufacturing by bringing cutting-edge industrial processes and artificial intelligence to enterprises.

Indeed, there is a growing trend focusing on implementing more advanced robotics, artificial intelligence (AI), big data, internet-of-things (IoT) devices, and additive manufacturing in the country’s businesses. This has for goal to transform Canada into a hub for innovation and manufacturing as well as grow manufacturing sales to $1 trillion by 2030 and build out Canada’s talent pool and foreign connections.

In order to do that, the federal government has planned to add at least 60,000 new advanced manufacturing jobs to the Canadian economy over the next 10 years. However, there are still challenges to overcome such as a shortage of skilled labor, the uneven adoption of new tech by manufacturers, and a slow rate of foreign investment.
