The Canadian German Chamber of Industry and Commerce Inc. is organizing a virtual trade mission to Canada for German companies, academics and suppliers in the sustainable mobility, connected and autonomous driving and e-mobility industries. The mission will take place from June 14-18, 2021. With support from the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) through its Foreign Market Entry Program, the mission will facilitate market and business partnership opportunities for small and medium-sized enterprises, industry leaders in the commercial sector, and business-related service providers with business operations in Germany. Furthermore, the mission will foster increased bilateral cooperation between Germany and Canada and will facilitate continued opportunities in trade.
Canada's road network stretches from the Atlantic to the Pacific coast and links urban centers with remote and sparsely populated areas in the north of the country. It also connects the country at numerous crossings with the U.S., its most important economic partner.
Canada's transportation sector forms an important pillar of the Canadian economy. The country's roughly 25 million cars and trucks together accounted for 25% of Canada's greenhouse gas emissions in 2018 and are responsible for three-quarters of the increase in energy-related CO2 emissions since 1990. As Canada's economy and population grow, so does the number of miles driven and congestion in urban transportation systems.
Canada has set a goal to reduce GHG emissions by 30% from 2005 levels by 2030. The transportation sector currently accounts for 25% of Canada's GHG emissions and offers tremendous opportunities for significant emissions reductions. To reduce emissions in the transportation sector, Canada is massively advancing the transition to zero- and low-emission transportation, increasing the use of cleaner fuels, and promoting the development of sustainable mobility and electric vehicles in public transit.
Coordinated regulatory actions have driven long-term technological innovation in the transportation sector, resulting in a significant increase in the market share of zero-emission vehicles sold in Canada. Canada has a large automotive manufacturing sector, an extensive presence of startups and technology-based companies, a highly skilled and educated workforce, and a supportive regulatory environment for research and development activities. Canada is a globally recognized location for artificial intelligence and has over 650 AI companies in the 5 major commercial centers of Toronto, Vancouver, Montréal, Kitchener-Waterloo and Edmonton.
As Canada moves into the next generation of automotive and manufacturing technology, it has tremendous potential to lead in the design, development and production of connected and autonomous vehicles, sustainable mobility and electric vehicles.
