Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, and the Premier of Ontario, Doug Ford, announced on October 8th, 2020, their commitment to Ford Motor Company of Canada’s investment in its Oakville Assembly Complex.

This project will help secure 5,400 well-paying middle class jobs across Ford’s production workforce in Canada and grow Canada’s green economy, especially in Southern Ontario. A repurposed battery-electric vehicle (BEV) production plant for the Oakville Assembly Complex is part of the Government of Canada’s commitment to sustainable growth. The Government of Canada is supporting this project as it will accelerate Canada’s clean energy transition, making zero-emission vehicles (ZEV) more affordable!

This project is in line with the Government of Canada’s goal of meeting their ambition of net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
