Myers Automotive Group in conjunction with Subaru Canada, announced the official ground-breaking of Myers Barrhaven Subaru located at 4151 Strandherd Drive in Barrhaven on May 3, 2023.


Myers Automotive Group joined the Barrhaven business community in 2016 with the opening of Myers Barrhaven Toyota. Now, Myers is proud to announce the ground-breaking of our fifth Barrhaven location, the Myers Barrhaven Subaru dealership, which will bring the Subaru brand of top-quality vehicles to the area.


Locally owned and operated by Harry and Robert Mews; the Mews family has always placed a strong emphasis on community involvement and giving back. Having grown up in the area and still today living in Barrhaven, Harry and Rob have made it a priority to have Myers become an integral part of the Barrhaven community. “Myers is Ottawa’s largest retailer of new and used vehicles and Subaru is one of Canada’s leading automotive brands. We know that this partnership bringing Myers and Subaru together here in Barrhaven, will be great for consumers and for the Barrhaven Community” said Myers CEO Cyril Leeder.


In addition to offering new employment opportunities for the residents of Barrhaven and surrounding areas, Myers and Subaru are committed to supporting our community in other ways as well. Both organizations have a long-standing tradition of giving back to local charities and organizations, and we will continue to prioritize community involvement and support here in Barrhaven.


“Subaru Canada is extremely proud to welcome Myers Automotive Group to the Subaru Canada family under the name “Barrhaven Subaru”. This is an important market for Subaru and we are very excited to work with Harry and Robert Mews who have deep family roots and an impeccable reputation within the Ottawa community and have grown a successful organization as Ottawa and Eastern Ontario’s largest automotive group” said Tomohiro Kubota, Chairman, President & CEO.


The store Grand opening is scheduled for the spring of 2024.


At Myers, we are proud to be a part of the Barrhaven community, and we are excited to continue to grow and serve our customers with the highest level of quality and care. Thank you for your continued support as we embark on this new and exciting chapter in our journey.


About Subaru Canada


The year 1978 represented a major milestone for Subaru; this was the year their vehicles were first sold through dealers in Canada. As was their style, they set about introducing drivers to a series of strikingly original and engaging models including the Subaru Brat (1978), the Justy (1984) and the XT (1985). In


1989, the responsibility for importing Subaru cars here was taken over by Subaru Canada, Inc. (SCI), a subsidiary of Subaru Corporation (formerly Fuji Heavy Industries).


Of course, it should come as no surprise that Subaru vehicles have resonated so profoundly with Canadian drivers. Our ever-changing weather has the capacity to keep us guessing at all times. Our landscape is equally varied — from the rugged beauty of the coastal towns in the east and west, to the wide-open splendour of the Prairies, to the concrete corridors of our large urban centres. If an environment that called for all-road/all-weather capability could be drawn up on a map, that map would look exactly like our home and native land. So, yes, Subaru is a proud Japanese manufacturer of automobiles. But our connection with this country and its drivers runs as deep as a Rocky Mountain snowfall.
