Ontario is the preeminent jurisdiction for automotive manufacturing in North America yet it does not have a business park facility centred around innovation and technological excellence in motorsport and transportation technology. The automotive sector was responsible for $64.4 billion worth of international exports in 2016, fully one third of the province’s total, producing upwards of $201 million per day in automotive output. The Canadian automotive sector is undergoing a rapid evolution. Oro Station is the catalyst to the future of automotive innovation in Ontario.

The park will be home to premier engineering, education, supply, design and manufacturing businesses that will benefit from the track facility for testing, design, development, marketing, events, tourism etc. The business park and motorsport club will provide the opportunity for like-minded individuals and companies to foster a community centred around the art and joy of the automobile
