AIA Canada has launched a website dedicated to Right to Repair activity for Canada’s automotive aftermarket.
The action comes on the heels of a Parliamentary Petition that garnered some 1700 signatures, more than three times the required number for certification. That petition was presented to the Government of Canada and requires a response.
There are currently two Right to Repair bills being considered. One which deals specifically with the Right to Repair issue in the automotive aftermarket that appears to be stalled, and another written to cover the issue more broadly, which is progressing through Parliament.
Neither is judged to be a comprehensive protection for access to repair tools and information however.
The new RighttoRepair.ca website is designed to help inform consumers and industry professionals of the issue as well as provide tools and talking point to help them communicate to their local Member of Parliament.
The tools included help aftermarket professionals:
- Write an email
- Make a phone call
- Request a meeting
- Invite your MP to tour your shop
- Send a Tweet
“We need all MPs to stand up for vehicle owners and the aftermarket, and support right to repair legislation in Canada that our petition demanded,” says AIA Canada. “We need to make sure they understand what’s at stake.”
