MONTREAL, March 1 (Reuters) - General Motors Co on Tuesday reported higher February auto sales in Canada, even as forecasters expect Canadian demand for light vehicles and trucks to level off this year following a record breaking 2015.

Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac dealers delivered 15,729 vehicles last month, an increase of 14 percent compared with February 2015.

"January and February have been a strong start for Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac building even further on the sales momentum started in 2015," said John Roth, GM Canada's vice president, sales, service and marketing in a news release.

In the United States, meanwhile, consumers boosted auto sales to a 15-year-high for February in a sign of continued confidence, despite gloomy talk about the economy on the U.S. presidential campaign trail. (Reporting By Allison Lampert; editing by Grant McCool)
