Leaders from Magna, Toyota and LeddarTech discuss how Canada’s supply chain can realise its potential for innovation as the Silicon Valley of the North, thanks to the local expertise and electric vehicle initiatives like Project Arrow.

The Toronto region in Canada has the tech talent, expertise and manufacturing base to maintain both a strong automotive production centre as well as to be the Silicon Valley of the North. But according to our panel of experts, it needs to learn to shout about itself a little bit more. Initiatives like Project Arrow should help with that, but with the current microchip shortage and with Covid far from over, plenty of challenges still lie ahead.
