Canada’s industry minister will meet with General Motors CEO Mary Barra on Monday to urge her to find a solution for the auto giant’s soon-to-be-shuttered plant in Oshawa. Ont.

A spokeswoman for Navdeep Bains says he will sit down with Barra at the International Auto Show in Detroit.

Dani Keenan says he intends to discuss any possible options for keeping the factory open.

Their meeting comes after GM’s announcement last fall that it plans to close the factory at the end of this year — a move that will put more than 2,500 employees out of work.
