Ontario is recognized as one of the best places in the world to research, design, develop and build vehicles and parts. The Ontario Automotive Communities Alliance is open for business, and represents 60 towns and cities that are home to Ontario's multi-billion-dollar auto sector.

Auto manufacturing is at the heart of Ontario's economy and is a provincial and national priority. As Canada's largest province, Ontario provides everything from a well-educated workforce, a wide selection of serviced industrial sites and an efficient transportation infrastructure.

Ontario provides easy access to about 60% of the North American market, and is the largest single auto jurisdiction on the continent, producing one of very six North American-built vehicles. The Ontario Automotive Communities Alliance crosses the globe to drive new trade and investment to the province.
