Every door plate I've checked so far says Indiana.

The Ascent is only for the US Market and all assembly is done in Indiana. The VIZIV model that the Ascent is based upon was made in Japan, but that's it.

Note that doesn't mean the stamping dies weren't made over there and then shipped here, that's typically how it's done. And, of course, the engine final assembly is done here, but the actual engine casting was done over there because that's where our engine casting plant is.

I thought it was going to be sold in Canada as well?
