CAA a leading trusted Canadian brand
CAA second-most trusted brand in the country

OTTAWA, ON— The Canadian Automobile Association (CAA) was named the second-most trusted brand in the country overall and number one for relationship trust, among a list of 294 companies. The results were announced in the latest Gustavson Brand Trust Index, released this month.

“It is a great testament to the network of CAA Club and staff across the country to be recognized,” said CAA National President Tim Shearman. “We take great pride in the way we interact with Canadians – whether they are Members or not – and this ranking is a reflection of that.”

CAA beat out iconic global brands such as Apple, IKEA and Netflix. The overall most trusted brand was Canadian outdoor recreation retailer MEC – Mountain Equipment Co-op.

More than 6,000 consumers were asked to score companies and brands on different dimensions of trust – perceptions on how the brand interacts with its customers, whether the brand is trustworthy and acts with integrity, the brand’s social responsibility and whether consumers would recommend the brand to others.

“Trust is very important to CAA. Our Members trust us to provide them with honest and helpful services and advice, and to advocate on their behalf – be it for traveller’s rights, safer roads or consumer protection,” said Jeff Walker, Chief Strategy Officer.

Conducted by the Peter B. Gustavson School of Business at the University of Victoria, the third annual Gustavson Brand Trust Index measures the performance of brands and companies in 26 industry sectors on a range of brand value measures.
