a non-profit social enterprise: working towards healthy, sustainable communities
Will Ontario become a relic of the auto industry?
Ontario’s Environmental Commissioner recently urged the province to up its game if it hopes to achieve its GHG emission reduction target.
Ontario is ideally positioned to be a leader in EV manufacturing, research and development, according to a recent study from Windfall Centre, which calls on the province to exploit its strengths and carve out an EV manufacturing node that will shore up its sagging auto sector. Missing the manufacturing opportunities presented by a transformative shift to low carbon vehicles would have dire economic consequences for Ontario’s labour market.
Join Windfall Centre for Doors Open Aurora this Saturday between 10:am and 4:pm at the Charles Henry Sheppard House. Guided tours are offered at 11:am, 1:pm and 3:pm and light refreshments will be available.
