What does a 'Made in Canada' tag mean to you?
To us, it means quality control, environmental responsibility and a commitment to the local economy.
When a product is built in Canada, it is manufactured under strict regulations. It is built to preform at a certain standard and function safely. When products are constructed offshore, the manufacturing quality has the potential to suffer dramatically.
With fewer environmental checks and balances, many offshore factories produce a higher quantity of industrial admissions. These admissions are adding to the global degradation of our atmosphere and are making the planet a little less habitable every day.
When products are produced overseas, the amount of transportation pollution increases ten-fold. When Canadian companies construct their own products, they eliminate the extra pollution produced by shipping.
A 'Made in Canada' tag also tells you that Canadians were employed in the manufacturing process. With the current economic climate, keeping jobs in Canada is important to every Canadian. A strong manufacturing industry encourages foreign investment and increases the value of Canadian products worldwide.
