2022 Edition of the Canadian International Auto Show is Cancelled

For the second consecutive year, the pandemic has forced the postponement of the Toronto auto show


  • The Omicron variant of the COVID-19 virus is responsible for the cancellation.

  • The event was to take place next February.


The Canadian automotive industry was getting excited at the idea of the return of the Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto next February but unfortunately, the pandemic’s not quite done with us.

Plans for the largest auto show in Canada were well underway for an in-person event at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre but they’ve been put on hold once more.

“It is with great regret that we have to make this announcement, but the health and wellbeing of our community needs to be our first priority,” says Jason Campbell, General Manager of the Canadian International AutoShow. “What has been clear over the past few months in our discussions with our consumers and our manufacturer partners is how much they all value our in-person live AutoShow event experience, and how hungry they all were for it to return.

“We had been working hard in recent months for the AutoShow to return in a big way, but in light of the recent developments, and in consultation and agreement with our manufacturer and sponsor partners, we have agreed that it’s best to set 2022 plans aside to best support the health and safety of our community. We want to thank all of our AutoShow partners, sponsors, exhibitors and consumers for their interest in coming back in 2022, but can assure them we’ll be back bigger than ever in 2023 for what will be our 50th year.”
