  • The Toronto Aerospace cluster is the second largest in Canada next to Aero Montreal, and generates more than $6 billion annually in sales of aerospace goods. There are more than 200 Toronto aerospace manufacturing firms and over 20,000 highly skilled and educated employees focused on systems engineering, equipment production and integration.
  • The Advanced Manufacturing Investment Strategy (AMIS): a $500 million repayable loan program (interest free) that will help stimulate the economy by encouraging private sector companies to invest and adopt innovative technologiesOntario's Centers of Excellence, such as the Center for Materials and Manufacturing, connect companies with public sector scientists and research facilities to develop commercial innovations.Early Researcher Award (ERA) program: provincial government will invest $51 million over five years in the next generation of researchers. In the GTA, 33 researchers received awards for their research in a wide range of fields. Ontario Aerospace Council (OAC)A not-for-profit, non-share capital corporation governed by a Board of Directors representing all segments of the Ontario aerospace industry. The OAC's goals are to enhance recognition of the Ontario aerospace industry as a leader in global aerospace markets and to build stronger capabilities in the industry to assure continued growth and
  • significant research and technology development in collaboration with more than 15 university, college and public research centers including:Carlton University,McMasterUniversity,Queen’sUniversity,Ryerson University's Institute for Aerospace Design and Innovation (RIADI)University of Ontario Institute of Technology, University of Ottawa, University of Toronto’s Institute for Aerospace StudiesUniversity of WaterlooThese academic institutions provide leading-edge aerospace education and training in the Toronto region, as well as facilities for advanced research and development.In addition, the planning and testing of groundbreaking discoveries have further catapulted and reinforced the province of Ontario and the GTA as the premier destination for innovation. Located across the province, these public research centers include:The Institute for Aerospace Research Ottawa, Canada's national laboratory for aerospace R&DDavid Florida Laboratory, Ottawa, Canada's world-class spacecraft assembly, integration and testing centerIntegrated Manufacturing Technologies Institute, London, a breeding ground for new products and technologies.
  • Toronto was the first to create a prototype of an airplane that could hover in the air con a long period of time without fuel power. The pilot project was called SHARP and was conducted by the U of T in the 1987. The product was successful as the the plane was able to stay in air for 20min with microwave beam power technology; it was a break through in the aerospace industry to use alternative energy sources to power objects in far distances. The project never took off as the satellite company feared it would harm their business. Now after more than 20 years the US military are interested in restoring this prototype to replace the spy satellite they have.This articles show that Toronto’s labour forces impacted the aerospace industry globally and not just locally.

    1. 1. GTA Aerospace Cluster<br />By: Ricky Kao<br />
    2. 2. What is a Cluster<br /><ul><li>a concentration of companies and industries in a geographic region, which are interconnected by the markets they serve, and the products they produce, as well as the suppliers, trade associations and educational institutions
    3. 3. These geographic concentrations of economic activity have some competitive advantage, and thus (usually) exports.
    4. 4. The change, over time, of a cluster, or group of clusters is best described by a system of innovation.</li></li></ul><li>Dimensions of Cluster<br />Networks and partnerships – social capital<br />Innovation and R&D capacity<br />Skills – availability and quality of workforce <br />Economy and enterprise – <br /> The level of employment, numberoffirms and their performance and the outcomes<br />
