CitroŽn in Canada


In the nineteen forties, a number of people privately imported CitroŽns into Canada and it is believed that many of these were built in England.  The Slough factory built a number of left hand drive Tractions for export to the USA, Canada and Switzerland.

CitroŽns were initially imported into Canada by a private entrepreneur called Harry Dubrowski whose business was called Auto-France on CŰte-des-Neiges in Montreal.

In 1961, CitroŽn Canada Ltd., a fully owned subsidiary of CitroŽn in France took over both the business and the premises of Auto-France.

CitroŽn Canada Limited opened branch offices in Toronto, Kenogami Quťbec, Montreal, Sherbrooke and Vancouver.

In 1973, the Vancouver branch was closed and the following year, the company ceased trading.
