Apr. 10, 2018 – The Ontario government is supporting the assembly of light rail vehicles for communities in Peel Region and Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) with the opening of Alstom’s new assembly facility in Brampton.
The contract, worth $528 million, will create between 100 and 120 full-time jobs in the new facility and support an additional 400 to 500 spinoff jobs.
In May 2017, Ontario announced a contract with Alstom to provide 61 vehicles for light rail transit (LRT) projects in the GTHA, with an option to acquire an additional 44 vehicles.
