Canada's Industry Minister says he's talking with Tesla about building a factory

At Tesla's annual meeting on August 4 this year, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said that Tesla may announce a new factory this year's plans, and he expects Tesla to eventually have 10 to 12 mega factories. For the location of the new factory, Musk has hinted that he prefers Canada. "We have a lot of Canadians, I'm half-Canadian, maybe I should (build a factory in Canada)?" he told shareholders at Tesla's annual meeting.

Canadian Industry Minister Francois-Philippe Champagne said in an interview with the media that he was in talks with Tesla and other automakers, Reuters reported today. "I think Canada is becoming the go-to place for the auto industry and the aerospace industry," he said. Asked about Tesla's plans to build a factory in Canada, he said: "Yes, I'm talking to them. Negotiations and I'm also in talks with other automakers."

In August this year, the minister visited the Tesla factory, and after visiting the factory, he shared a video saying: "Every Tesla has a Canadian shadow."

According to previous reports, Tesla is recruiting HR in Montreal, Canada, and HR will be responsible for a large number of recruiting staff. Unlike general HR, Tesla only recruits such HR in places where giga-factories have already been established, such as Texas in the US and Berlin in Germany. Therefore, this implies that Tesla will build a new Gigafactory in Montreal, Canada.
