Great Lakes Manufacturing Council

Shaping the Future

“The Great Lakes Manufacturing Council gives us access to an important network of influential people and their invaluable ingenuity. Working together with the GLMC ultimately helped us to shape the future of manufacturing in our regions!”

– Stephane Fallecker, Director, Economic Affairs, Québec Government Office in Chicago



7 The Council is supporting the development of a manufacturing workforce and talent pipeline throughout the Great Lakes. Leaders in manufacturing and education are examining how Canada and the U.S. can better coordinate or harmonize their skills certification standards. Our manufacturing skills and productivity are vital to the region’s success, and we must create the platform for developing the next generations of manufacturing talent.
