The Automotive Maintenance & Repair Association (AMRA) and the Motorist Assurance Program (MAP) have taken over the administration of the Motorist Assurance Program of Canada. MAP Canada, which has been operated by AIA Canada since 1998, is based on the MAP program in the United States.
MAP Canada offered accreditation to facilities in the Canadian automotive repair and service industry, as well as membership to manufacturing and supply companies that support the industry.
AMRA/MAP intends to absorb MAP Canada members as soon as possible. Canadian service providers, such as Active, Green + Ross, Canadian Tire Corp. and Midas International, will continue to train their employees in a similar fashion, with a few changes, as they make progress toward having their facilities meet MAP participation guidelines.
