Automotive Funding for Canadian Business Webinars

The North American automotive industry is poised for growth in 2018 and beyond. Because of this, Canada’s vast supply chain of part manufacturers should explore opportunities to scale operations, become more productive, and improve worker skills to support technology innovation.

Fortunately, Canadian government funding programs are available to offset the costs of automotive manufacturing growth projects.

From May to July 2018, automotive manufacturers can take a deep-dive into government grants and loans and learn how to develop a Proactive Funding Plan™ to optimize their company’s growth strategy. A webinar series, hosted by Mentor Works Ltd. and the Automotive Parts Manufacturer’s Association (APMA) will explore specific government grants and funding opportunities to adopt new technologies, perform cutting-edge research and development projects, and reach export markets.

Funding to Grow Your Automotive Business: Upcoming Webinar Sessions

Automotive manufacturing is one of the most actively targeted sectors when it comes to Canadian government funding. This is because our federal and provincial governments invest in companies that improve productivity, integrate advanced equipment, and reach new export markets. Automotive companies are constantly completing these types of projects and therefore have significant opportunity to leverage grants and loans.

During Summer 2018, APMA members and manufacturers in Mentor Works’ network are invited to participate in an ongoing webinar series on Funding to Grow Your Automotive Business.

There are three upcoming sessions for which companies may register, including automotive-focused webinars for:

  1. Research and Innovation (May 9 @ 2:00 – 3:00pm ET)
  2. Exporting (June 20 @ 1:00 – 2:00pm ET)
  3. Productivity and Growth (July 25 @ 1:00 – 2:00pm ET)
