The Ontario government is hoping to encourage automakers to stay and expand in the province.

Premier Dalton McGuinty announced an “automotive investment strategy” that will see the government spend $500 million over the next five years to train workers for the next generation of innovation in the industry.

“By investing in our workers and their skills, we can attract new investment and create high-wage jobs in the province’s largest manufacturing sector,” said McGuinty.
