Winter – Alternative Service Providers - Ottawa and North Bay areas

CAA North and East Ontario (CAA NEO) is seeking to hire companies to provide battery boost services for Members across our territory, on an on-call basis. Each winter, our organization experiences up to 12 days of significantly high call volumes, which generally occur when the temperature drops below -22°C. This requires us to look at alternative service providers to meet the increased demand for battery boosting services on those days.

This opportunity works well for certain companies, such as snow removal businesses. Since it typically does not snow once the thermostat reaches -22 or below, CAA NEO is able to leverage your work-force, while allowing you to meet guaranteed minimum hours for staff. If your business meets our requirements, send us an email at:


Your company must have:
  • An adequate vehicle, in good working order
  • At least one person that can pass a criminal background check
  • Commercial liability of at least two million Canadian dollars
  • Ability to work outside boosting vehicles in temperatures below -22
We will provide:
  • A guarantee of $50 per hour for six hours (more if you exceed certain thresholds)
  • Work within Ottawa (for example, Kanata, Orleans or downtown), or North Bay
  • Paid training
  • All of the equipment, including a safety vest

We are always looking for contractors through out our territory and a link to Contactor Application that would lead to a page similar to the following page at Atlantic:

Only contractors that meet our requirements in their service coverage areas will be contacted for further consideration. All applications will be kept on file for 1 year from date of submission.
