Guide to Economic Development in the Global Auto Industry - S12

UOIT's ACE Climatic Wind Tunnel

CANADA
Canada is home to a vibrant auto manufacturing industry and to leading expertise in emerging automotive
technologies such as artificial intelligence, cybersecurity and data analytics. It's an ideal place to design and build
the car of the future. Canada's combination of industrial and technological excellence already has attracted major
autonomous- and connected-vehicle investments from automakers and tech leaders alike.

WORKFORCE
Canada has the most highly
educated workforce among
countries in the Organization
for Economic Co-operation and
Development-nearly twothirds of Canadians have a postsecondary education. Canada's
Global Skills Strategy makes it
even easier for employers to
hire highly skilled talent, and
the diversity that highly skilled
immigrants bring to Canada
makes the country even more
dynamic and prosperous.

INFRASTRUCTURE
The Smart Cities Challenge is
empowering communities to
address local mobility challenges
using artificial intelligence, the
"internet of things," geospatial
analysis and other technologies.
The competition invests up
to $75 million in data-driven
approaches to "unsolvable
problems" that engage

12

residents and are scalable,
so the outcomes can benefit
communities across Canada.

BUSINESS SUPPORT
Canada's innovation funding
programs support r&d and
foreign investment. The $1.26
billion Strategic Innovation
Fund supports multiple sectors
including the automotive
industry. The Innovation
Superclusters Initiative is
investing up to $950 million,
matched dollar for dollar by the
private sector, to transform the
existing strengths of five regional
superclusters into competitive
advantages, including an Ontariobased Advanced Manufacturing
Supercluster and Quebec-based
Supply Chains and Logistics
Excellence.AI (SCALE.AI), which
uses artificial intelligence to
optimize supply chains.

EXISTING INDUSTRY
Five global auto manufacturers
produce 2.2 million vehicles a

E C O N O M I C D E V E L O P M E N T G U I D E / J U LY 2 0 1 8

year in Canada, and all five have
announced reinvestments in
their Canadian operations since
2015. Canada has a rich supplier
ecosystem and fee-for-service
research and testing facilities
that work with manufacturers to
optimize their products, such as
the ACE Climatic Wind Tunnel
at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (pictured).

QUALITY OF LIFE
Canada's quality of life consistently ranks among the best in
the world, owing in part to a
publicly funded health care system that helps keep employers'
insurance costs low.
