Transport Canada says the recall affects models from Honda, BMW, Ford and Chrysler from the years 2001 to 2014.
The list of affected vehicles posted online by Transport Canada includes the Honda Civic, Accord and CR-V, Chrysler products including the Dodge Ram and the Chrysler 300, BMW sedans and the X5, and Ford's Ranger and Mustang.
The recall was issued due to concerns that airbag inflators can explode with too much force, spewing metal shrapnel into drivers or passengers.
Last week, the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said that Takata agreed to double the number of inflators it recalled to 33.8 million.
Six people have been killed and more than 100 injured due to the problem, though no deaths or injuries have been reported in Canada.
