As a retired automotive executive, Mr. Tanguay's main role is as Automotive Advisor, although he also remains Executive Advisor for TMMC. In response to a request by the Canadian Automotive Partnership Council (CAPC), the role of Automotive Advisor was announced in June 2015 to provide advice to the governments of Canada and Ontario on strengthening the value proposition for growing the automotive sector and for advancing a strategy to secure further investments in Canada. Since that time, Mr. Tanguay has undertaken extensive outreach with key automotive stakeholders in Canada and the U.S., accompanied by federal and provincials officials. His goal is to define the current challenges and opportunities facing the sector and seek views on key decision factors influencing automotive investment in Canada. Ongoing outreach is underway with academics, opinion leaders and industry experts, provincial and municipal governments, and regional economic development agencies to gain data and insights.
