Canadians for a Modern Industrial Strategy

Canadians for a Modern Industrial Strategy (CMIS) brings together people from labour, business and the community who believe our economic success and social well-being depend on adopting a proactive industrial strategy that is based on reducing income inequality, creating good jobs and putting people and nature at the heart of the economy.

We believe that governments must have an essential coordinating and enabling role to play in the economy and work in partnership with labour, business, academic institutions and other stakeholders.

CMIS attempts to move beyond the sterile debate between “high tech” and “smokestack” industries and provides the tools different sectors need to be a vibrant part of a modern and green economy.

The key activities of CMIS include:

  • providing a forum for discussion of what should be part of a modern industrial strategy;

  • conducting research and analysis of public policy issues related to a modern industrial strategy;

  • providing access to research and information; and

  • advocacy with government and in public forums for adoption of a modern industrial strategy.
