Featured initiative

Excellence in Manufacturing Consortium

Empowering the Manufacturing Sector through Collaboration

We believe in the power of collaboration to drive innovation and address workforce challenges in different industries. Our long-standing partnership with Excellence in Manufacturing (EMC) exemplifies how industry associations and sector councils can leverage the Magnet platform to support their work in specific sectors.

Excellence in Manufacturing (EMC) has been at the forefront of supporting students and recent graduates in attaining employment within the manufacturing sector through their WILWorks program. Recognizing the need to address labor shortages and equip young talent with the necessary skills, EMC collaborated with Magnet to enhance their initiatives and create lasting impact.

The WILWorks Program

EMC's WILWorks program consists of the High School, Trades and Graduate Community projects, which aim to develop students' skills and bridge the gap between education and industry. These projects have been successful in building a talent pipeline and addressing labor shortages within the manufacturing sector. These WILWorks projects utilize Magnet’s Outcome Adjudicator and reporting tools to provide employers with wage incentives for hiring and providing visibility to youth aged 15-29 in skilled trades.

The collaboration between Magnet and EMC has been instrumental in the continuous expansion and sustainability of the WILWorks projects. Magnet's platform and digital tools have simplified the application and reimbursement process, connecting eligible employers with wage subsidies and providing youth with valuable employment opportunities.

The positive feedback from employers and participating youth showcases the power of the Magnet platform and collaborative approach in streamlining and supporting Canada's employment and training ecosystem. By leveraging Magnet's technology and resources, EMC has been able to effectively connect industries with talent, address labor shortages, and empower the manufacturing sector.
