Cyber Risks in the Supply Chain and its Impact on Canadian Manufacturers
September 27, 2016 @ 1:00 pm

Presented by:

Over the past few years, many high-profile data breaches such as Target and Home Depot have been attributed to vulnerabilities in the supply chain with varying reports indicating up to 80% of attacks originating through a third party supplier. This is leading many organizations to expand their view of security to include those they do business with including suppliers and customers. For many in the manufacturing sector, they are now being required to document and prove security compliance as part of the vendor agreement. In addition, many are examining their own supplier agreements to ensure that all gaps in the supply chain are secured. In this webinar, we will examine:
What organizations are doing to safeguard their data

  • The revenue impacts to manufacturers
  • What to consider when building your strategy.

In 2015, Ontario launched public consultations (Changing Workplaces Review) into amendments to the Employment Standards Act and Labour Relations Act.

CME Launches Enabling Change Program to Help Manufacturers with AODA Compliance
October 12, 2016 at 1:00 PM

Brought to you by:


CME Ontario has recently launched An EnAbling Change Project with the Government of Ontario, to inform and support small and medium-sized manufacturers in Ontario with their compliance obligations under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), 2005. CME consistently hears from members on the challenges they face in addressing regulatory burden in the face of intensifying competitive pressures.

Meanwhile, there are 1.8 million Ontarians with disabilities, and accessible employment practices can help Ontario’s manufacturers and exporters reach this untapped supply of talent. The Enabling Change partnership provides an opportunity to partner with government to provide useful information, tools, and resources to make compliance straightforward, and help participating organizations realize the benefits of accessibility.

The program will launch a series of communications, webinars and events to help CME members understand and comply with Ontario’s accessibility standards, and the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), 2005. CME will also develop and host a website with helpful links to information, tools, and resources for manufacturers relating to accessibility.



The session will provide an overview of the CME members’ accessibility obligations under the law, provide some useful links, and give manufacturers an opportunity to share their experiences related to compliance with Ontario’s accessibility laws.
