Toronto - Aug. 9, 2011 - Premier Dalton McGuinty visited the workers who are developing Siemens Canada's new plant in Tillsonburg today, thanking them for their hard work in helping Ontario become a global leader in clean energy.

Siemens Canada Limited is creating 900 jobs - 300 direct and 600 indirect - in clean technology at this plant, which will build wind turbine blades. The Tillsonburg plant is one of four under Ontario's revised, enhanced agreement with Samsung that will provide 16,000 clean energy jobs across Ontario.

Ontario is back on track and moving forward in the clean energy economy. Because of the changes we've made, together, Ontario has added 20,000 new, high-skills clean energy jobs since 2009.

Building a clean, modern and reliable electricity system is part of the government's plan to attract clean energy investments and create good jobs in communities across Ontario.

"We're moving forward together to become number one in North America when it comes to clean energy. Thanks to the hard work of Ontarians, that's already happening. Ontario's economy has turned the corner and we're back on track. We can't go backwards, now," said Premier Dalton McGuinty.

"Siemens is building on its strong position in the Ontario wind power market. Our investment in the Tillsonburg blade facility will further enhance our ability to competitively serve our customers, locally, and potentially across North America," said Bill Smith, Senior Vice President, Siemens Canada Limited.
