The Automotive Industries Association of Canada (AIA Canada) has announced that it has reached an agreement to sign-on to the Canadian Automotive Service Information Standard (CASIS), the voluntary agreement governing the access to automaker service information websites in Canada. The agreement is targeted at ensuring the automotive aftermarket has access to emission and non-emission related service information, diagnostic tools and training information from all vehicle manufacturers in Canada. The CASIS agreement is supported by the Canadian Vehicle Manufacturers Association (CVMA), the Association of International Automobile Manufacturers of Canada (AIAMC) and the National Automotive Trades Association (NATA). AIA Canada president Marc Brazeau states that the CASIS agreement represents a significant achievement for Canada’s automotive aftermarket industry and is confident that AIA members will benefit greatly from the voluntary access to information that is being provided by all vehicle manufacturers. “We are very pleased to be working side by side with the CVMA, AIAMC and NATA for the benefit of the entire automotive industry. This is a great day for AIA members and their customers across Canada,” stated Brazeau.
