Senior Debt Securities



We intend to
offer from time to time senior debt securities (which we refer to in this prospectus as the “debt securities”) in one or more series with a total offering price not to exceed U.S. $2,000,000,000 (or the U.S. dollar equivalent
thereof if any of the debt securities are denominated in a currency or a currency unit other than U.S. dollars) during the 25-month period that this prospectus, including any amendments thereto, remains valid.

All information omitted from this short form base shelf prospectus will be contained in one or more prospectus supplements that will be
delivered to purchasers together with this prospectus. You should read this prospectus and the applicable supplement carefully before you invest. Any such supplement to this prospectus will be incorporated by reference into this prospectus as of the
date of the supplement, but only for the purposes of the offering of debt securities to which the supplement relates.

We may sell the
debt securities to or through one or more underwriters, dealers or agents. The names of the underwriters, dealers or agents will be set forth in supplements to this prospectus.

The debt securities will constitute our senior unsecured obligations and will rank equally with all our other existing and future senior
unsecured obligations.

We are permitted, under a multijurisdictional disclosure system adopted by the United States, to prepare this
prospectus in accordance with the disclosure requirements of Canada. Prospective investors should be aware that such requirements are different from those of the United States.

Prospective investors should be aware that the acquisition of the debt securities described herein may have tax consequences both in the
United States and in Canada. Such consequences for investors who are resident in, or citizens of, the United States may not be described fully herein.

The enforcement by investors of civil liabilities under United States federal securities laws may be affected adversely by the fact that we
are an Ontario corporation, a majority of our assets are located outside of the United States and a majority of our directors and officers and some of the experts named in this prospectus are resident outside of the United States and a majority of
their assets are located outside of the United States.

These securities have not been approved or disapproved by the U.S.
Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) or any U.S. state securities regulator nor has the SEC or any U.S. state securities regulator passed upon the accuracy or adequacy of this prospectus or any applicable prospectus
supplement. Any representation to the contrary is a criminal offense.

This prospectus does not qualify for issuance debt securities
in respect of which the payment of principal and/or interest may be determined, in whole or in part, by reference to one or more underlying interests, including, for example, an equity or debt security, a statistical measure of economic or financial
performance including, but not limited to, any currency, consumer price or mortgage index, or the price or value of one or more commodities, indices or other items, or any other item or formula, or any combination or basket of the foregoing items.
For greater certainty, this prospectus may qualify for issuance debt securities in respect of which the payment of principal and/or interest may be determined, in whole or in part, by reference to published rates of a central banking authority or
one or more financial institutions, such as a prime rate or a bankers’ acceptance rate, or to recognized market benchmark interest rates such as LIBOR.

There is no market through which the debt securities may be sold and purchasers may not be able to resell debt securities purchased under
this prospectus. This may affect the pricing of the debt securities in the secondary market, the transparency and availability of trading prices, the liquidity of the debt securities, and the extent of issuer regulation. See “Plan of

All amounts referred to in this prospectus and in the documents incorporated by reference are presented in U.S.
dollars, in each case, unless otherwise stated.

The head and registered office of Magna International Inc. is located at 337 Magna Drive,
Aurora, Ontario, Canada L4G 7K1.
