Manufacturers may be eyeing Ontario if they start to pull out of cheaper labour markets.

If they set up shop here, that means more jobs popping up.

A report by KPMG shows North American manufacturers may be bringing operations back because of better quality control and high transportation costs from off-shore plants.

It says southwestern Ontario would be an ideal location because it's close to the U.S.

Minister of Economic Development, Employment and Infrastructure Brad Duguid says Ontario has one of the best-skilled labour forces in the world.

He says costs for manufacturers have gone down in the province, pointing to the government lowering the corporate tax rate. But in other countries costs are rising.

Duguid stresses Ontario is the ideal centre for "re-shoring."
