General Motors of Canada is expected to announce today that production of the next generation Chevrolet Camaro will take place in Michigan instead of Ontario, according to media reports.

The Camaro, currently made in Oshawa, Ontario, will be built in Lansing, Mich., according to Toronto’s Globe and Mail newspaper and Reuters. The newspapers cited unnamed sources and Reuters attributed its information to an unnamed union source.

A GM spokesman could not be immediately reached for comment by Automotive News.

The Globe and Mail also reported that GM’s agreement with the Canadian Auto Workers in September said it would continue to build the Camaro in Oshawa until the end of the current generation, but made no promises about future generations.

A third shift is being added to the Oshawa plant in early 2013 to assemble the next generation of the Chevrolet Impala, the paper reported.
