From everyday items like hockey tape, cheese curds and Adirondack chairs, to world-class products in every sector — antennas for NASA, seismic monitoring sensors set at the bottom of the ocean, nuclear-reactor components — what’s made and built in Eastern Ontario is truly impressive.
Making it work, that’s the theme of the 2022 issue of STUFF Made and Built in Eastern Ontario, an interactive digital and print magazine celebrating the successes and promoting the opportunities in the manufacturing and construction industries.
The 2021/2022 edition highlights the fact that these industries are experiencing a boom and a digital transformation, creating well-paying and rewarding careers in communities across Eastern Ontario.
“We have so many incredible success stories locally that we wanted to bring together companies looking to hire, with people who perhaps haven’t considered the sector as a career choice,” says STUFF publisher Terry Tyo.

- What are the 35 coolest things made and built in Eastern Ontario?
- Meet recent grads finding success in these industries
- What are top jobs in the region by wage and demand?
