Automotive production is a key pillar of Canada’s manufacturing industry, accounting for a significant portion of the manufacturing sectors’ cross-border trade, sales, and gross domestic product (GDP). Since the last recession, automotive production has rebounded as consumer demand for motor vehicles increased in 2009 in both the US and Canada. The Canadian federal and provincial governments have created a range of automotive and manufacturing funding programs to aid this key industry and ensure its competitiveness on a global scale. In this webinar, attendees will gain insight into funding opportunities to support:
The adoption of advanced technologies;
The research & development of innovative products, processes, and technologies for the industry;
Export expansion activities and supporting projects that will improve international competitiveness;
The creation of fuel-efficient and environmentally-friendly new technologies;
Large-scale Canadian business expansion and job creation projects;
High-skill training to improve productivity and enable new production capabilities;
Post-secondary, industry R&D collaborative partnerships; and
Marketing and hiring activities to support exporting.
