Honda was the first Japanese automaker to build vehicles in Canada in 1986, followed by Toyota in 1988 and CAMI (GM/Suzuki) in 1989. Currently Japanese-brand automakers are Canada’s first (Toyota) and third (Honda) largest manufacturers of light duty vehicles.

Japanese-brand auto parts manufacturers began to invest in Canada in the early 1970s, supplying parts and components to the growing auto industry in Canada. Today there are 64 Japanese auto parts related manufacturers in Canada, most of which are located in Ontario.

Their commitment to Canada continues to grow. Japanese-branded companies have have consistently manufactured more automobiles every year since 2001. Today, they produce more than a million vehicles per year — almost half of all light vehicle production in Canada.
