2022 InnoVEX Forum

Ride to the Future: Canada-Taiwan EV Summit

May 24, 2022 10:30-12:00

EV & Smart Mobility

The future of Canada's transportation sector is green. Canada is one of the many countries committed to transitioning from internal combustion engines to electric-powered, zero-emission vehicles by 2035. Announcements from Ford, Honda, BASF, General Motors, and Stellantis and LG confirm Canada's intention to lead in the global transition to EVs. This is an outcome of collaboration across industry and government combined with significant investments in innovative manufacturing technologies.

Today we invite two Canadian speakers - Sarah Tatsis, Senior VP, IVY Platform Development, BlackBerry, and Stephen Coates, Vice President, Global Operations and General Manager, Asia, GaN Systems – to share with Taiwanese high tech companies Canada's commitment and opportunities in building upon its world-class research and manufacturing capabilities and developing new value chains to meet the shift to zero-emission vehicles.

Significant innovation, investment, and commercial opportunities lie ahead throughout the EV value chain in Canada, from mineral extraction and hydrogen production, to refining, processing, battery manufacturing, electronics and parts production, compound semiconductor, security and AI-enabled services and solutions. We wish to invite Taiwanese companies to join us to the ride to the future of EV!
