Actually FCA’s Windsor Assembly plant is the largest in Canada!

Windsor Assembly Plant is now Canada’s largest manufacturing workplace | Windsor Star

Also, even though some consider Windsor to be part of Canada’s rust belt, which it was, Windsor now has a very strong economy, with unemployment rates hovering around 5%, a surging manufacturing sector, a very strong housing market with quickly rising home values, and a very healthy growth rate! Not so rusty anymore!
