About the Automotive Industries Association of Canada (AIA Canada)

The Automotive Industries Association of Canada (AIA Canada) is the national trade association that brings together the entire automotive aftermarket supply and service chain. AIA Canada's mandate is to promote, educate and represent members in areas that impact the growth and prosperity of the industry.

About the Automotive Aftermarket Industry

The automotive aftermarket industry in Canada is a $32.2 billion industry that employs 491,800 people in every community across the country. The automotive aftermarket sector comprises companies that manufacture, distribute and install automotive replacement parts, accessories, tools, and equipment.

Any product or service that a vehicle may need after being assembled by the Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) is an aftermarket product or service. The traditional aftermarket includes independent repair facilities and mass merchandiser facilities; it does not include warranty service from an OE dealer.
