Tesla opens up on effort to set up factory in Canada

Tesla Inc is lobbying Ontario to set up an “advanced manufacturing facility” in Canada.

Tesla’s Canadian unit is working with the government to “identify opportunities for industrial facility permitting reforms”, a filing by the electric-vehicle maker to the province’s Office of the Integrity Commissioner showed.

Tesla lobbying attempt comes as U.S. electric-vehicle makers look to source materials and build cars closer home to diversify supply chains and lower their dependence on China.
