OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Dec. 1, 2015) - The automotive industry has long been the engine of Canada's manufacturing economy. But it is said that this sector is about to experience more dramatic change in the next decade than it has in the past 50 years. Steve Carlisle, a Canadian who recently returned as President and Managing Director of General Motors Canada, will outline the key forces that will disrupt the auto sector and how GM plans to be part of that disruption - in electric vehicles, connected cars, autonomous driving cars and new approaches to urban mobility. He will also discuss how Canada can benefit from these new automotive horizons.
