GM closing all operations in Oshawa

GM’s history in Canada dates back more than 100 years.
General Motors is planning to close all operations in Oshawa, affecting thousands of high-paying jobs.

The announcement is expected shortly. Oshawa is a city of about 159,000 people located roughly 60 km east of Toronto. Sources say the Oshawa closures are part of a global restructuring. There are about 2,500 union positions and roughly 300 salaried employees in the Oshawa area.
GM merged with McLaughlin Buicks in 1918. The Oshawa Assembly Plant opened in 1953.
