We used to make things in this country. #288: Canada Motor Products Ltd., Toronto, Ontario

GM of Canada incorporated Canadian Products Limited in 1920, when they established two big factories in Walker Road, Walkerville, in 1919 but although the company existed it never traded although the Walker Road plant and two nearby 'Fisher Body' Plants became the 'Canadian Products Division' of GM of Canada and then CP Ltd was dissolved by 1933. In addition there was General Motors Products of Canada Limited which was the sales organisation, though they did play a part in the CMP development story from 1936. Canada Motor Products manufactured replacement parts for starting, lighting & ignition. The company had locations in Toronto, Winnipeg and Montreal.
