The Canadian Automotive Industry

  Vehicles Made in Canada

The Canadian automotive industry produces light duty vehicles — cars, vans, pickup trucks; heavy duty vehicles—trucks, transit buses, school buses, military vehicles; and a wide range of parts, components, and systems used in vehicles of this nature. To complement its manufacturing activities, the industry boasts a well-developed vehicle dealer network, plus an aftermarket organization which has grown into a world-class distribution system and service provider.

The Canadian automotive industry is: 

  • Integrated into NAFTA (i.e. Canada, U.S., Mexico)
  • Globally competitive
  • The eighth largest in the world with positive trade balance
  • A major contributor to the Canadian economy, employing over half a million people
