2023 Canadians to Watch
The sixth annual Canadians to Watch program highlights rising stars, key players and influencers who could be considered architects of a transforming auto industry, from product lines and production, to labour and groundbreaking technology. The electrification overhaul — pushed into overdrive by government sales mandates and unprecedented spending — presents monumental challenges but also golden opportunities for companies that are fast, lean and resourceful. At the heart of it all is a tech sector that‘s blossoming well beyond the traditional base in Southern Ontario. Indeed, there are many core Canadians to Watch, but the 2023 honourees are prime examples of individuals driving industry transformation.
