Legal Services

The UCDA has its members best interest in mind at all times. To that end we have a Legal Services Department to respond to those questions that have legal implications.

Jim Hamilton, the Legal Services Director is a qualified lawyers who will gladly try to help our members with a variety of problems.

Some of the more common areas are, but not by any means limited to:

  • advice and information about legislation affecting dealers
  • liens
  • mediating disputes between consumers and dealers
  • assisting with registration issues
  • GST and PST questions
  • vehicle registration branding
  • practical advice aimed at avoiding problems, BEFORE they happen

Our legal staff are not able to act as direct counsel for members but they can assist in determining a course of action, often relieving a member from having to engage a lawyer.
