The Canadian automotive manufacturing sector remains a key pillar to the nation’s economy. However, the industry continues to face challenges, such as globalization, supply chain complexities, the pandemic, and trade relations. These obstacles underline the importance of investing in efficiency improvements and new technologies in order to stay competitive and profitable in this ever-changing environment.

This webinar will focus on the top trends and technologies that automotive suppliers can leverage to improve their bottom line and output potentials, as well as the government funding that can support them.

Manufacturers must sort through a wide variety of government funding options to determine which options are most relevant to their upcoming spends, including the recently announced Ontario Automotive Modernization Program (O-AMP), CME Technology Assessment Program (TAP), and the Southwestern & Easter Ontario Development Fund (SWODF/EODF). Each of these programs cover unique projects and expenses, including technology adoption, training, research & development, and job creation.

In this 45-minute session, John Preiditsch of Six S Partners will dive into some of the key technologies that are helping Canadian automotive manufacturers stay competitive and profitable in 2020, while Bernadeen McLeod from Mentor Works Ltd. will discuss the top government funding options to support those investments.
