Used Car Dealers Association of Ontario   
Representation    
The UCDA is in regular contact with the many Government Departments, Federal and Provincial, that affect dealers. 

It maintains a close working relationship with the Ministry of Consumer and Commercial Relations and with OMVIC , the Ontario Motor Vehicle Industry Council, which manages the industry. In fact, the UCDA had underwritten the cost of a number of Canadian Automotive Institute students who worked in the Registrar's office on curbsiding investigations.

Liaison and coalitions with other automotive industry groups is an important activity in helping to ensure that the interests of the industry are advanced.

The UCDA participated with CADA, AARO, CVMA, AIAMC, AIA * and others, in joint approaches to both the Federal and the Ontario governments. Issues have included GST, Dealer Regulations, Import Regulations, Vehicle Permit Branding, Vehicle Safety Standards, Vehicle Emission Testing, Curbsider studies and many others. 

Internationally, the UCDA is associated with the NIADA ** which provides for the free exchange of information and ideas on issues that impact all used vehicle dealers in North America.

The media have acknowledged the Association's role as the spokesgroup for the industry and the UCDA is regularly contacted for the industry's perspective on issues. 

The UCDA compiles and disseminates various industry statistics to the media, Government and other interested groups. Its data on used vehicle sales and curbsider statistics is frequently requested.
