We are Moving Humanity forward:

At General Motors Canada, we are transforming the future of mobility.  Over the last 100 years, we have marketed fuel-efficient Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac vehicles and related services.  With over 23,000 people dedicated to delivering the best products and services to our customers, we will continue meeting expectations as one of Canada’s leading auto makers.

As we enter our next 100 years, General Motors Canada supports our global, bold vision to create a world with zero crashes, zero emissions and zero congestion

Zero Crashes: Where instead of simply trying to protect passengers during and after a crash – we prevent crashes from happening in the first place.

Zero Emissions:  Where even as we continue to deliver the best fuel economy in today’s vehicles – we’ll move, over time, toward all-electric and fuel cell vehicles.

Zero Congestion:   Where we travel more safely, smoothly and quickly to our destinations, saving time, fuel, and money.

In 2017, Chevrolet sold over 1/3 of all the plug in EVs in Canada, leading the way to an all- electric future with no more carbon emissions.   All our manufacturing sites in Canada are landfill free, joining the 142 global facilities that recycle, reuse or convert-to-energy all waste from daily operations, reducing greenhouse gas emissions.  And our sites are fully engaged in environmental outreach programs winning awards for Sustainable Development Goals and overall excellence in Corporate conservation.

In Canada, we’re hiring engineers and technical innovators to help reach our vision.  In 2018 we announced the new GM Canada STEM fund -  a $1.8 million investment in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), a commitment over 3 years to develop, inspire and educate the next generation of innovators.

We have expanded our Canadian technology footprint with investments in our Cold Weather Testing facility in Kapuskasing, our 2908 innovation lab at Communitech in Kitchener-Waterloo, our Canadian Technical Centres in Oshawa and Markham, and our future mobility Campus, 721 eastern Avenue in Toronto.

Oshawa Assembly
General Motors of Canada Limited
900 Park Road South
Oshawa, Ontario

The General Motors Oshawa Assembly Plant has been building world class vehicles in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada since November 7, 1953.  Before 1953, the facility produced McLaughlin Buicks and became one of six locations building Chevrolet before it merged with GM in 1918.  During its first years of production the Oshawa plant produced Pontiac, Chevrolet and Buick models.  In 2009 the plant began producing the 5th generation Chevrolet Camaro and in 2013 began building the Cadillac XTS making Oshawa Assembly capable of building a model from every GM brand except GMC.

In 2010, the Oshawa Assembly Plant began building the Chevrolet Equinox in a partnership with CAMI Assembly in Ingersoll, Ontario.  In response to increased customer demand for the product, the shuttle program was created, allowing CAMI to ship metal bodies to the Oshawa plant where they were completely assembled.  This partnership continued for seven years, ending with the 2017 model year of the Chevrolet Equinox.

Oshawa Assembly is the most decorated plant with 29 JD Power awards, a proven track record of great quality and customer satisfaction.  In 2014 Oshawa was recognized as the most complex facility in North America, building several models and options on the Flex Line while also running a Consolidated Line within one plant.

Oshawa Assembly builds the Chevrolet Impala, Cadillac XTS, and both the Heavy and Light Duty models of the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra full size trucks.  The Oshawa Assembly Plant is now capable of building any make or model of vehicle and is the only plant currently building both cars and trucks.

CAMI Assembly
General Motors of Canada Company
300 Ingersoll Street
Ingersoll, Ontario

The team at CAMI Assembly has been building world-class vehicles in Ingersoll, Ontario, Canada since April 1, 1989. The plant was originally established in 1986 as CAMI Automotive Inc. - a joint venture with Suzuki Motor Corporation. Construction began in 1987 for a cost of CAD $363.6 million.

During the early years of production, the CAMI Assembly plant produced models for both Chevrolet and Suzuki. In 2011, the plant became a fully-owned entity of General Motors, ending the joint venture partnership with Suzuki Motor Corporation.

In 2010, following the launch of the second generation Chevrolet Equinox, CAMI Assembly collaborated with Oshawa Assembly to respond to the increased customer demand for the popular Equinox. This shuttle program continued for seven years and enabled CAMI Assembly to ship welded bodies to Oshawa assembly where the were painted and processed for final assembly.

CAMI Assembly is recognized both inside and outside of the manufacturing industry as one of the most efficient assembly plants in North America. In June 2014, J.D. Power awarded CAMI Assembly with the J.D. Power Silver Plant Award for the Americas recognizing the plant for its first-time quality performance. Since starting production in 1989, the Ingersoll Ontario plant has produced over 4 million vehicles.
