March 25, 2020 – In response to the urgency of the COVID-19 pandemic, JP Giroux, president of Excellence in Manufacturing Consortium (EMC), said that the organization is launching a Canada-wide initiative that will compile the knowledge and experiences of all its members relating to COVID-19.

“We want to offer support to the entire Canadian manufacturing sector,” he stated in a press release. “During these unprecedented times, it is imperative that we come together and support the expanse of our manufacturing network.”

He said that EMC recognizes the importance of maintaining high-level resources, services and support for Canadian manufacturers.

Due to the urgency of the pandemic, EMC has opened the Member Needs Help forum to not only its members, but also to non-members, and to all manufacturing stakeholders, nationwide.


“EMC’s dedicated web-based forum, run through the Member Needs Help platform, is now available,” said Giroux. “This forum contains all COVID-19-related information and support. EMC will continue to actively receive questions from manufacturers through the Member Needs Help forum, track issues, and provide prompt responses.”

EMC’s Member Needs Help forum is an email service delivered to member inboxes. The service has been developed by manufacturers, and is for manufacturers. It provides an opportunity for members to learn from the insights and experiences of other members and to share information on subjects such as policies, procedures and information to enhance performance in workplaces. Topics run the gamut from health and safety to HR practices, advanced technologies, and everything in-between.

EMC is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping manufacturers grow and become more competitive, at home and around the world.
