    FORD CANADA INCORPORATED
    August 17, 1904 - Windsor, Ontario. Canada

    Ford Motor Company of Canada, Ltd. was incorporated near Windsor, Ontario. The American company was expanding into its first country outside of the U.S., little more than a year after organizing in America on 16 Jun 1903, and selling its first Model A Ford car on 23 Jul 1903. On 10 Aug 1904, Henry Ford had signed an agreement with Canadian entrepreneur Gordon McGregor who started, on 10 Oct 1904, making Fords at his wagon works, with 17 employees. In its first fiscal year, 117 Ford cars were built in Canada. McGregor's persistance paid off. Boosted by Ford's meteoric rise, he became Windor's preeminent industrialist. A century later, Ford's output in Canada had risen to about half a million vehicles a year, employing more than 15,000 people.
