Moderne Fertigung wird von ständigen Technologieeffizienzgewinnen getrieben, wie etwa verbesserter Robotik, disruptiver Software-Technologien und Automatisierungstechnik. In der Region Durham sind zwei von Kanadas angesehensten Lern- und Forschungseinrichtungen angesiedelt, das Institute of Technology der University of Ontario (UOIT) und Durham College. In jüngster Vergangenheit waren diese Einrichtungen Gastgeber der Internationalen Robotik-Meisterschaft, bei der 80 Robotik-Teams aus ganz Nordamerika um eine Platzierung bei der ersten kanadischen Robotik-Weltmeisterschaft rangen.
