TORONTO, Feb. 17 /CNW/ - AJAC (the Automobile Journalists Association of
Canada) and CAA (the Canadian Automobile Association) are pleased to
announce they have formed a partnership that will provide Canadian
consumers with better access to factual, ethical and honest information
on automotive topics that matter to them.
The two organizations will collaborate on initiatives such as
conferences and awareness campaigns on the impact of driving
distractions and helping cyclists and vehicles co-exist safely on our
roadways. A web-based publication to inform consumers about new engine
technologies is already in the works, and plans for several
demonstration events for consumers are being drafted.
AJAC is an association of professional writers, publishers and
photographers whose focus is the automobile and the automotive
industry. AJAC, a not-for-profit professional organization incorporated
in 1981, was established to encourage unity among journalists who
specialize in reporting on the automobile. AJAC manages the annual
Canadian Car of the Year awards program.
The Canadian Automobile Association (CAA) is a federation of nine clubs
providing more than 5.6 million members with exceptional emergency
roadside service, complete automotive and travel services, member
savings and comprehensive insurance services. CAA also advocates on
issues of concern to its members, including road safety, the
environment, mobility, infrastructure and consumer protection.
