Canadian auto-parts companies now employ more people in the United States and Mexico than the entire sector employs in this country, according to new data that industry and government officials will showcase to try to avert drastic changes to the automotive provisions of NAFTA.

The numbers show Canadian companies employ about 86,000 people at factories located in Canada’s two North American free-trade agreement partners, compared with about 71,000 in the auto-parts sector as a whole in Canada, calculations done by the Automotive Parts Manufacturers Association of Canada show.
