Ontario Launches Investigation Into Volkswagen Canada

1

The action by Volkswagen Canada and Audi Canada to sell cars to its dealers and consumers with software to bypass the vehicle’s emissions control is under investigation by the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change for possible violations under the Environmental Protection Act.

Ontario’s Environmental Protection Act prohibits the sale of vehicles that do not meet emissions standards.

The province is also requiring the company to provide a plan detailing the actions they will take to fix impacted vehicles in Ontario.

When Volkswagen Canada and Audi Canada have identified an Ontario-specific solution to the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change, they will be expected to take action to ensure impacted vehicles are in compliance while minimizing any inconvenience and costs to owners.
