Mystery Vintage Folding Bike

Hi, I'm trying to figure out my folding bike's origins. Got it at a garage sale, and the owner didn't know anything. It has two stickers: one says 'made in Canada' and the other says "Grand Prix". "Grand Prix" is also written in caps on the down tube. It's a three speed. Does anyone have any ideas? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks!

I have basically the same frame without the Grande Prix name and mine was sold by sears. My guess it was European decent from the parts on it but could have been made in Canada. Roger

Can you post a pic of the full bike? First guess from the flattened top tube is a Auto-Mini variant.
