You will find both imperial and metric used depending on the machinery worked on. Anything out of Japan is metric whilst anything from the US is imperial the list goes on. We have the same over in Australia.

I did read somewhere that metric is the main unit for distance and temperature although some elder Canadians still work in the imperial system
