In 1922, Roy Leggat left the family farm in Stoney Creek, Ontario, and with a $3,000-loan from his mother, laid the foundation for what one day would become the Leggat Auto Group.
In the years since its inception, Leggat continues to be a recognizable name in Ontario thanks to three consecutive generations of the Leggat family operating the Group. Today, dealerships bearing the Leggat name can be found throughout Ontario, selling top-quality vehicles including Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, Honda, Toyota, Mazda, Cadillac, Ford and Acura.
