In a statement shared on his LinkedIn account, the Prime Minister said that Canada is working to create “good middle class jobs” by investing in “several historic manufacturing deals” with talented workers. The deals, according to a senior Canadian official, will secure thousands of jobs. Furthermore, Trudeau announced that he plans to make electric vehicles more friendly and accessible by introducing incentives for those who purchase electric vehicles such as hybrids and batteries.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has embarked on a federal government effort to make electric vehicles more accessible by introducing mandatory sales targets and offering incentives for those who purchase electric vehicles.
Let’s be honest: Canada has the best auto workers in the world. They’re leading on clean energy and technology, they’re attracting historic investments in the electric vehicle supply chain, and they’re helping us meet the growing demand for hybrid and electric vehicles. We’re going to keep having their backs.
We’re going to make North American supply chains even stronger, we’re going to stay focused on creating good jobs, and we’re going to make sure that, when automakers around the world want to manufacture electric vehicles, they know Canada is the best place to do it.
We’ve already made investments to support and modernize plants in places like Brampton, Alliston, Ingersoll, Oshawa, and Oakville, securing thousands of good jobs in the process. And we’ll continue to do everything we can to support workers and their families, and to help keep air our clean.
