General Motors Expected to Shut Down Operations in Oshawa, Ontario

General Motors Co. plans to close its manufacturing operations in the Canadian city of Oshawa, according to people familiar with the plans, the latest in a series of cost-cutting moves under way at the Detroit car maker.

The move will affect roughly 2,800 workers in Oshawa, just east of Toronto, where GM now builds pickup trucks and large sedans, and comes as the Canadian auto sector is struggling to preserve jobs and attract new investment.
