GM Canada also launched its year end “Wish and Win” event which gives GM customers the chance to win a new car or up to an additional $10,000 toward the purchase of their new GM car or truck.

“Coming off our strong October sales increases, we are moving beyond our great lease and finance rates to offer GM customers even greater value,” said Marc Comeau, GM of Canada’s vice-president of sales, service, and marketing. “We know consumers have been focused on the high Canadian dollar so we are going to continue to show them that the best value on the industry’s best vehicles can be found at their local GM Canada dealership.”
