Business Mission

Ontario Showcases Auto Strengths in Japan

Ontario is showcasing its strengths for automotive innovation and advanced manufacturing at the Tokyo Motor Show with help from Ray Tanguay

Queens Park - Brad Duguid, Minister of Economic Development, Employment and Infrastructure is on a business mission to Japan, meeting with auto executives to advocate for new investments in Ontario’s auto industry. He recently had productive meetings with assembly companies Toyota and Hino, and parts companies Toyoda Gosei and Toyota Boshoku, with more meetings scheduled.

Ontario is among the top automotive jurisdictions in North America, with Japanese automakers accounting for about 40 per cent of the province’s total vehicle production in 2014. With a strong supply chain and long-standing record of quality manufacturing, Ontario is a destination of choice for high-margin vehicle production.

Ontario is showcasing its strengths for automotive innovation and advanced manufacturing at the Tokyo Motor Show with help from Ray Tanguay, Canada’s and Ontario’s strategic auto advisor.

Mr. Tanguay’s role includes increasing industry awareness of Ontario’s strengths, compiling detailed domestic and international information to better understand new areas of growth for Ontario’s auto and manufacturing sectors, and deepening relationships with key industry executives. This has included meetings with each of the six companies building vehicles in Ontario, meeting with Ed Clark, the Premier’s Business Advisor, to highlight the importance of the auto sector to Ontario’s economy, and showcasing Ontario’s automotive strengths as the keynote speaker at a major industry conference in Tennessee.

Working to attract investment and grow the province’s auto sector is part of the government's plan to build Ontario up. The four-part plan includes investing in people's talents and skills, making the largest investment in public infrastructure in Ontario's history, creating a dynamic, innovative environment where business thrives, and building a secure retirement savings plan.
