TORONTO, Feb. 23, 2024 – Canadian Tire Corporation, Limited (“CTC”) and Attabotics Inc. (“Attabotics”) have entered into a confidential full and final settlement in relation to litigation that Attabotics initiated against CTC in May 2023 before the Ontario Superior Court pertaining to a fire on March 15, 2023 at CTC’s A.J. Billes Distribution Centre located at 8550 Goreway Drive in Brampton, Ontario (“DC Fire”).

Remediation efforts and investigation into the cause and origin of the DC Fire have been underway since March 2023. No findings have been made with respect to the cause and origin of the DC Fire.
