Travel Advice / Consumer Information
As one Canada's most trusted, respected and largest consumer-based organizations, representing over 5.4 million Members nationally and over 257,000 throughout our NEO region, CAA provides motorists, travellers, consumers and decision-makers with key information they need about the issues that matter to them. CAANEO remains resolute in remaining a trusted advisor in the promotion of travel and automobile safety by regularly disseminating information and conducting relevant programs/campaigns.
Car Care Clinics
These seminars are geared towards informing Members about the care and maintenance of their respective vehicle, the concepts and principles of the safety features of their vehicle, what to do if problems occur, as well as what technicians look for when inspecting an automobile.
Car Seat Clinics
Recognizing the need for every child to travel in a safe, well-installed car seat, the Club, in concert with S.E.A.T.S. for Kids Canada, conducts car seat inspection clinics. The Ontario Ministry of Transportation requires that children under the age of eight, who weigh less than 36 kg (80 lbs.) and stand less than 145 cm (4 feet 9 inches) tall are properly secured in the appropriate child safety or booster seat. Properly installed car seats can greatly reduce the instances of children being injured in collisions. According to Transport Canada, 10,000 children under the age of 12 are injured in car crashes every year. Ultimately, these Club-sponsored car seat inspection clinics are an ideal forum for interested motorists to gain valuable information regarding how to properly install a car seat and ensure that their most important cargo is buckled up safely.
Student Auto Skills
This program/competition is geared towards high school students, and encourages young men and women to consider pursuing a career in the auto repair field. Students write an exam in the morning and conduct the ‘Pit-Stop-Challenge’ in the afternoon. The competition is a day of serious skills and knowledge evaluation. It is an excellent opportunity to highlight automotive trades and to encourage high school students to pursue the many careers available to them in the expanding automotive industry.
