Protecting Canada’s EV Opportunities 

June 24, 2024

Ottawa, ON – Leveraging the power of Canada’s skilled workforce with the right decisions, we can make sure that the growth in net-zero industries like Electric Vehicles (EVs) will be an opportunity for creating good, unionized jobs. 

Protecting the EV supply chains in Canada is about investing in Canada’s capacity to transition to a low-carbon economy with good, unionized jobs that support families—not a backdoor for China to flood our market with its cars.  

The consultations announced today should result in quick and decisive action to protect from unfair Chinese competition and create Canadian jobs in domestic EV supply chains.  

Both the United States and Europe have introduced higher import tariffs on Chinese-made EVs. Similar action from Canada is essential to ensure that the highly integrated automotive sector in Canada, U.S. and Mexico will continue to grow with good, unionized jobs that strengthen our economy and ensure we meet our climate ambitions.
