According to a "World of Commodore" Brochure:

Commodore has become an intemational company,
with manufacturing facilities in Japan,
Hong Kong, West Germany, the U.K., Pennsylvania
and California in the United States and
Scarborough,Ont. In fiscal 1983 world-wide sales
increased 44.7 percent over 1982's US$304.5
million to reach over US$680 million. By the end
of fiscal 1984, Commodore will be a billion-dollarplus
company.

I worked for a dealer in the 80's and was often sent to the complex on Pharmacy Ave. in Scarborough. I imagine that's the place they were referencing in the brochure.
