Dear fellow bloggers, MITI wishes to thank all bloggers who participate in MITI Blog. The recent surge in comments, particularly on the NAP Review, showed that this blog is most relevant and a good channel of communication for MITI to engage its stakeholders. Regarding the End-of-Life Vehicle (ELV) policy, which is clearly the main current focus of discussions in MITI Blog, the Government, on 6 November 2009, has announced to pull back the policy with immediate effect after taking into account the people’s views and feedback. The complete announcement from MITI on the ELV policy as below answers all the grouses from the public, kudos to all bloggers!

Higher demand for quality spare parts drives the growth of the automotive after-market rapidly in Canada. The increasing number of vehicles on the road translates into demand for spare parts and offsets the intense competition and market maturity in the automotive after-market. Research also suggests that owners of used vehicles turn to the aftermarket for parts and the prevalent aggressive driving style also leads to faster wearing out of tires and other parts of the vehicles. The automotive industry is Canada’s largest manufacturing sector, accounting for 12 per cent of manufacturing GDP and 24 per cent of manufacturing trade. The recent world economic downturn have impacted on every level of the Canadian automotive value chain, from dealers and extending to every major player in the industry including the Small and medium-sized OEM suppliers. The long term outlook of the Canadian automotive industry is mixed with some good prospects, although recovery of the overall North...Read More
