About ARP

AutomotiveRetailer.ca is the home of Automotive Retailers Publishing Company Ltd. (ARP), publishers of leading national aftermarket automotive industry trade magazines such as Collision Quarterly and Tow Canada. We are proudly Canadian, with offices in Burnaby, British Columbia and Toronto, Ontario.

What differentiates ARP's titles from competing industry trade magazines?

ARP is owned by the Automotive Retailers Association of British Columbia. Our history dates back to the late 1940s.

ARP is NOT  a publishing company that happens to have, among numerous other unrelated titles, magazines for the collision repair and towing industries, and sells advertising for profit. ARP is a communication tool for Canada's collision repair and towing industry associations. Your advertising dollars help pay for it, so by advertising with us, you are not lining the pockets of media executives and shareholders...you are supporting the industries your customers are part of.

Furthermore, much of the content in our magazines comes from the provincial and national trade associations and partnering industry experts. That means the content is relevant, which means it is more widely read.

That is the ARP difference!
