The Canadian automotive supply sector can be segmented into several categories: large Canadian Tier 1s, Canadian subsidiaries of large international Tier 1s, medium-sized Canadian suppliers with multiple footprints and small Canadian suppliers with single footprints. Since 2015, the APMA position on the original TPP has been that the large Canadian Tier1s would be unaffected in a material sense by the reduction of tariffs, and that they may benefit from potential access to new markets. However the small and medium sized firms, which represented more than half of the 96,000 jobs in our industry, need to be protected from a proposed dramatic shift in sourcing dynamics to Low-cost Asian countries like China and Thailand.
