If you made a list of words that pop into your head when you think of Canada, winter might just come ahead of politeness, beavers and hockey.
But in some of the places with the lousiest winters, there are still Canadians who don’t drive with winter tires.
In a recent survey by the Tire and Rubber Association of Canada (TRAC), 66 per cent of Canadians said they own winter tires. Provincially, that ranges from a high of 86 per cent in Quebec, where winter tires are required by law, to a low of 48 per cent in Manitoba and Saskatchewan.

“Taking Sustainability to the Next Level”
“Taking Sustainability to the Next Level” theme starts with the premise that corporate sustainability is fully embedded at the highest level of the industry. But what of the value chain as tires move through the market distribution channels to the final end-user? Do we have sustainable market players throughout the channels who act in accord with corporate sustainability goals and, more importantly, can these players operate in an ethical, social, environmental, cultural and economic sphere in the same way as their major suppliers?
To be sure, there are other drivers at play such as economic factors, market conditions and legislative imperatives that can work to either stymie or encourage taking sustainability. The 2108 Symposium will attempt to explore all sides of the issue in order to take the industry’s corporate sustainability where it needs to be.
