Ottawa, Ontario – A new exhibit on Canadian cars will launch in June at the Canada Science and Technology Museum in Ottawa, presented by Toyota Canada. The exhibit, In Search of the Canadian Car, will run for five years.
Visitors will better understand Canada’s auto industry achievements, including those individuals who work to build and distribute the vehicles that Canadians love to drive.
“The past, present and future of Canadian vehicles reflects a collective cultural history which will be showcased through this exciting new exhibit, a great addition to the Canada Science and Technology Museum,” said Yoichi Tomihara, president of Toyota Canada. “Toyota, as a proud and longstanding member of Canadian communities from coast to coast through our manufacturing, sales, dealership and parts operations, is pleased to be the automotive partner for this exhibition.”
A red 1989 Toyota Corolla, the first Canadian-build Corolla sold in Canada, will be on display, along with a first-generation 1998 Prius hybrid and vintage advertising materials.
