The Impact of the GM Plan's Closing Down at Boisbriand.


Just before the GM Plan's Closing Down at Boisbriand, an in-depth study has been made at the Trade and Commerce Ministry, Government of Quebec, in 1999. This study demonstrated that it was more benefit for the growth of Canadian GNP and for the economy of all the provinces (excluding Ontario), to let car assembly plan in Boisbriand rather than create the equivalent in Ontario.


The reason was that GM in Boisbriand was most integrated to the economy of Ontario and other provinces for its inputs, than GM in Ontario which is more integrated to the US economy for its inputs. - Let us note that, in spite of this,  the federal government has supported GM to close down Boisbriand and has supported them for relaunching car assembly in Ontario with major investments.


This important study is available at the Economic and Regional Department, Government of Quebec.
