Ontario is at the forefront of intelligent transportation. With the second largest IT cluster in North America, and an extensive history of automotive manufacturing, Ontario is poised to lead the autonomous car revolution. We have one of the richest concentrations of auto-related resources anywhere in the world with some of the lowest operational costs. Over 700 automotive parts manufacturers, 500+ tool, die and mould makers, and over 100,000 employees call Ontario home.
Everything you need you will find right here in Ontario: a high quality workforce, strategic access to the North American market, a dynamic environment for R&D and a culture of high-quality, award-winning manufacturing. These advantages are part of the reason we’ve been one of the leading subnational car producers in North America for the past decade. If you aren’t convinced already, Ontario has free trade agreements with over 40 countries representing 1.5 billion customers including the US, EU, Japan and South Korea and 85% of all Ontario-made parts are exported.
The Automotive Suppliers Forum is organized by the Automotive Cluster of Guanajuato, located in the Bajio Region. This is the 7th edition of the show and the first one to be held virtually. The forum has been growing in importance as a hub where buyers and suppliers from the Bajío region meet. In 2019 the show attracted over 5,000 attendees and hosted 3,700 B2B meetings.
Ontario companies interested in finding new partners and clients in the automotive sector will be showcasing their innovations at the virtual Canadian pavilion.
