What We Do

Automotive Retailers Publishing (ARP) is a leading Canadian publisher of automotive trades and business information through print and online magazines. Founded in 1957, ARP is owned by the Automotive Retailers Association (ARA) in British Columbia, Canada.

ARP’s objective is to augment and facilitate the sharing of knowledge, best practices, and information about tools and related resources within the automotive aftermarket services and product industry. Our aim is to provide readers with relevant, comprehensive, expert-driven commentary on the issues, trends, and practices driving business and professional development within the industry we serve.

AutomotiveRetailer.ca is ARP’s online magazine, delivering content from all segments of our industry: collision repair, tow and recovery, auto-recycling, auto rental, auto glass, licensed motor dealers, mechanical repair, and power sports dealers. AutomotiveRetailer.ca is committed to providing quality, informed editorial with a robust emphasis on the issues facing today’s automotive trades men and women.

Our two highly popular print publications, Collision Quarterly and Tow Canada, provide information and resources for each industry respectively. ARP has also recently launched GreenAuto Canada, an online publication with the same mandate as our print publications.

What sets ARP apart from competing publications is our direct connection to the provincial and regional automotive trades associations across Canada that use our pages to communicate with their members, industry stakeholders, and their counterparts.
