The Canadian Government supports the automotive industry
The Federal Government of Canada has invested about 9.5 million dollars to support the Canadian auto industry and its workers.
The funds allocated by the Government are destined for the UOIT, the University of Ontario for technology, with the aim of improving the center of automotive excellence in Oshawa, and to create new jobs in the research and development field in the car industry. UOIT owns and operates the Automotive Center of Excellence, a 16,300-square-meter facility that hosts one of the largest and most sophisticated wind tunnels in the world.
The funding will double the number of full-time jobs at the facility, generate new training opportunities and promote research and development of new technologies.
"We’re taking action to support our Canadian workers throughout the auto sector. This project will create good, well-paying jobs in the region and help keep our industry competitive on the world stage. With a skilled workforce, world-renowned companies, and leading-edge research, Canada's auto sector is well positioned to create the vehicles of the future – ones that will be both safer and more efficient", said Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
