About Mazda Canada

Mazda Canada proudly offers Canadians vehicles that celebrate the joy of driving. Established in 1968 as a subsidiary of Mazda Motor Corporation, our head office is located in Richmond Hill with regional offices in Montreal, Vancouver and Richmond Hill.

With 163 independently owned, franchised Mazda dealers across Canada alone, we are part of a global family of distributors, research centers and affiliated companies.


Mazda has come a long way from its humble beginnings as a small, independent cork manufacturer in Hiroshima, Japan. We owe our success to the innovative thinkers and designers who have helped us stand as a global leader in the automotive industry.

Today, Mazda Motor Corporation, still based in Hiroshima, Japan, manufactures a diverse line of passenger and commercial vehicles, and is one of the largest employers in western Japan.

In the years since Mazda arrived in Canada, we’ve built a reputation for uncompromising quality, outstanding value and vehicles that are a thrill to drive. Fueled by our focus on human-centric design, we strive to engineer ideal driving environments that instill a feeling of oneness, or Jinba Ittai, between car and driver.

As we craft vehicles that people love to drive the world over, we also remain committed to our role as a global corporate citizen. In 2008, Mazda announced the SUSTAINABLE ZOOM-ZOOM plan that is dedicated to environmental harmony between cars, society and nature.


Our commitment to innovation extends to developing our groundbreaking Skyactiv Technology and pioneering research into alternative fuel sources like compressed natural gas, hydrogen and electricity. We’re also eliminating the production of CFCs and the use of asbestos in the manufacture of cars.

At Mazda, we share our passion for driving through our pursuit of perfection, crafting sophisticated, thrilling, versatile and fun-to-drive vehicles. After reaching a historic milestone in January 2020, and celebrating 100 years of Mazda, we at Mazda Canada look ahead to 100 more years of driving joy.
