CAA has always been at the forefront of key issues of concern to our more than 6 million Members in 8 Clubs from coast-to-coast.
CAA was founded in 1913 as a not-for-profit organization to represent the interests of motorists. The world has evolved since then and so has CAA. Today, we have more than six million members from coast-to-coast, and the services we offer them extend well beyond emergency roadside assistance. But we also remain a not-for-profit, member-driven organization that is, at its heart, an advocate for the Canadian traveller.
Our advocacy efforts fall under five pillars and cover a diverse range of topics that include distracted and impaired driving, air passenger rights, and emerging vehicle technology, as it relates to both the environmental impact of vehicles and on the advancements in personal mobility, such as driver-less cars. CAA also supports measurements that promote active transportation and expand investments in infrastructure that aim to reduce congestion on our roadways.
At CAA, we ensure the voice of our Members and Canadians are heard by providing key policy-makers with the information they need, from the consumer perspective, about the issues most affecting the travelling public.
