OSHAWA, Ont. (November 8, 2018)Today marks the 100th anniversary of General Motors Canada and we are celebrating this milestone by looking to the future. Our vision for the next 100 years starts with our bold “Triple Zero” vision – achieving a world with zero crashes, zero emissions and zero congestion.

We want all Canadians to be part of the next 100 years of electric vehicles, self-driving cars and a new world of shared mobility services.

Our future will also be founded upon our efforts today to inspire young women, under-represented groups and teachers across Canada to embrace Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). Earlier this year, GM Canada announced a $1.8 million commitment to support STEM and this year alone we will reach over 38,000 Canadian students.

Our founder and first president, Colonel Sam McLaughlin, was an innovator, entrepreneur and visionary. His spirit has carried our company forward for a century. Here’s to the next 100 years at GM Canada.
