Presenter: Mathew Wilson
Senior Vice President, Policy, Government Relations, and Ontario Division at Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters



Experienced association executive who has developed and coordinated Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters (CME) government relations activities since 2011. Over this time, the association has become known as the most influential business association in Canada, meeting with more senior officials than any other association and securing significant support for the sector based on the needs of its members.

Most notably the association was able to raise the profile of the manufacturing sector to ensure it was a cornerstone of multiple Federal and Provincial Budgets, secured support for regulatory and border simplification through the Canada/US Regulatory Cooperation Council and Beyond the Border working group, expanded government financial support programs, reduced corporate and payroll taxes, and increased direct funding for corporate employee training.

Currently leading all efforts on CME's Industrie 2030 initiative (www.industrie2030.ca), consulting with Canadian industries on the future of manufacturing and exporting in Canada to create an action plan to double manufacturing output and exports by 2030.
