GM of Canada

November 18, 2010 (Oshawa, ON) - General Motors of Canada’s manufacturing locations in Oshawa, St. Catharines and Ingersoll, Ontario
will each host an open house event by the end of 2011 as part of a broader GM initiative in the United States. Each GM plant location will choose a date for their facility and invite community members to attend to learn more about the people, the products and the manufacturing processes used to deliver the highest possible quality.
“Thanks to the hard work of the local teams, as well as the support we have received from various stakeholder groups, we have very strong manufacturing operations in Canada that employ thousands of people,” said Kevin Williams, GM Canada’s president and managing director. “These open houses are our way of showing our appreciation for the support we received and for the communities in which we operate.”
“The hard work and dedication of our CAW membership has been a key contributor to today’s milestone at General Motors,” said Ken Lewenza, President Canadian Auto Workers. “We are pleased to be able to showcase our highly skilled workforce and GM’s top quality manufacturing facilities in Canada.”
Since July 2009, GM Canada has announced investments of over $1 billion dollars in its Canadian plant facilities that will result in over 2,800 jobs when fully implemented. Already, GM’s Oshawa and CAMI plants have recalled all laid off production employees and hired over 400 new employees to support strong customer demand for the Chevrolet Camaro and Equinox, and the GMC Terrain and to ready for production of new models – great news for these employees, their families and communities.
In addition, the St. Catharines Powertrain facility will begin producing a new transmission in 2012 and has a new engine mandate for 2013, with facility preparation work for these programs already underway.
