VW in Canada ordered to pay $150m over emissions scandal

A court in Toronto on Wednesday ordered Volkswagen to pay a fine of Can$196.5 million (US $150 million) after the automaker pleaded guilty to violating environmental laws in the emissions cheating scandal. The court accepted an agreement that the German automaker reached with the Canadian government, which in December filed a 60-count indictment against the company.

This fine is in addition to nearly Can$2.4 billion that Volkswagen had agreed to pay in 2016 to compensate Canadians who bought some 130,000 cars that did not meet Canadian standards from 2009 to that year, as well as a Can$17.5 million penalty for false advertising.

In December, Ottawa accused the automaker of knowingly importing cars into Canada that did not meet emission standards, after more than four years of investigation. In a statement, Volkswagen said it had taken extensive measures “to make things right in Canada” and cooperated fully with the investigation into the cheating.
