National Association of Automobile Clubs of Canada
Celebrating 51 years of helping the Collector Car Hobby in Canada

?

Greetings NAACC members and friends,
????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????? As Canada comes out of a world-wide pandemic, I am reflecting back on an unforgettable 2020 year. The NAACC has had one of it’s busiest years ever in spite of Covid 19. We officially partnered with five very significant groups including TechForce Foundation, RPM Foundation and the American Hot Rod Foundation. Call up the ‘Links’ section on the NAACC website to view our current Strategic Partners.?

This year of 2021 has brought the resurgence of several old problems. Private land use and the vehicle storage of older cars is now resurfacing. Twenty years ago, the NAACC represented several private land owners who were having pressure put on them to remove unlicensed vehicles from their property. Often rural governments sent in car crushers to deal with perceived problems. Owners were given short or no notice and many collectable vehicles were destroyed. ?The NAACC and the land owners sued the municipalities in question and were successful. Compensation was paid to the land owners.
