Canadian Supplier Footprint, USA/Mexico Report

Canadian Supplier Footprint, USA/Mexico Report

In March of 2017, and in the context of the discussion regarding the future of NAFTA, the APMA sought to inventory Canadian supplier facilities and employment numbers in the USA and Mexico. Tabled here is a summary of the footprint study of Canadian assets in those two countries. OEM Automotive supply firms with headquarters in Canada – both in volume supply and machine, tool, die and mold – were included in the study.  The final numbers tell a story of the great reach of Canadian auto supply investment outside of Canada.

As a base line comparison, total employment in Canada’s automotive manufacturing sector is approximately 81,000, comprised of both Canadian and foreign-led firms. The number is a compilation of the supply based employment, an estimated 71,000 in 2016, and accounting for 50% of the Machine, Tool, Die and Mold employment figure, estimated to be 20,000 in 2016.  A summary of the report can be reviewed here.
