On January 19, 2018, General Motors unveiled its new state of the art innovation facility – The Canadian Technical Centre (CTC) – in Markham. Located at 101 McNabb St., near Warden Ave and Hwy 7, this facility is joining Markham’s already growing information technology sector.
CTC Markham director Brian Tossan indicated that this new tech facility will add 700 new jobs and create a “safer driving world”. He added this facility will “make a mark on society on a global scale, and it will start here in Markham.” GM Canada president Steve Carlisle called the facility GM’s “crown jewel”.
The addition of 700 jobs coming to Markham, could potentially mean new people moving into the city and surrounding areas. The opportunity to live close to where you work allows individuals to have more quality time with the family and spend less time on the road travelling to and from work.
