Digital Auto Care Factbook 2019 - 93

Canada Auto Care Industry
The Canadian auto care industry's
retail sales totaled $21.3 billion in 2016,
representing a 1.4 percent increase from
2015's $20.9 billion.
Within Canada's geographic auto care
hierarchy, Ontario contributed 34.7
percent of 2016 auto care industry dollars
($7.4 billion), increasing 2.9 percent in total
revenue from 2015. With the exception of
Atlantic and Prairies, the selected regions
experienced increases in total revenue
from last year. Prairies had a small
decrease in revenue among the regions,
down 0.1 percent to $4.8 billion, while
contributing 22.6 percent of total national
industry revenues.
In terms of the number of establishments,
two of four auto care professional
technician and retail locations showed
unit increases in 2016. The number
of automotive parts and accessories
retailers grew 5.1 percent from 4,656
locations in 2015 to 4,893 in 2016,
culminating in 10-year, 2.1 percent
compounded annual growth.
Oil changes remain the most common
maintenance and repair item among
all automotive services performed in
Canada. Jobs in this sector totaled 48.3
million in 2016. (See page 94). The auto
care industry is strong in Canada, in part
because Canadian drivers keep their cars
an average of 9.6 years. (See page 95).
