Manufacturing & Export Enhancement (MEE) Cluster

 OUR MISSION: Build a Collaborative Manufacturing Ecosystem, Foster Innovation, Raise Awareness and Adoption of Process Improvement and Smart Manufacturing best practices in Western Canada.

Launched in early 2021, the Manufacturing Export Enhancement (MEE) Cluster is an industry lead initiative that supports growth and competitiveness of Western Canadian manufacturers. The cluster is designed to facilitate collaboration between:

  • Manufacturers
  • Solutions providers
  • Post-secondary institutions
  • Other like-minded organizations

We work together to de-risk innovation, accelerate technology adoption and foster growth opportunities for Western Canadian manufacturers.

The MEE Cluster strives to elevate the manufacturing industry by working with our partners to:

1. Promote process improvement and Lean best practices through our LEAN Accelerator Program.

2. Promote LEAN as part of a safe work envirnment.

3. Promote inclusivity of under-represented groups in manufacturing.
