Chemicals

Liquid drop falling into test tubes.

By recent estimates, the Canadian chemistry and plastics sector adds $55 billion to the Canadian economy every year, while the chemical industry supports approximately 525,000 direct and indirect jobs across the country. This is a complex, but integral sector – chemicals are an intrinsic component of virtually every industrial and manufacturing process and are a critical part of the supply chains of many industries, from agriculture and electronics, to automotive and pharmaceuticals.

Companies that operate in this sector face a range of challenges, including environmental and regulatory concerns, effective supply chain management and ongoing economic uncertainty, but must always be on the lookout for opportunities for growth and expansion.
