The Industry, consisting of over 1110 individual dealerships, makes significant contribution to the Ontario economy, generating over 53,000 direct jobs and $37.1 billion in retail sales annually, accounting for 20% of total retail sales in the province.

PwC was retained by TADA to conduct an analysis of the economic contribution to the Ontario economy of its members’ operations in the province. Specifically, our study assesses the economic impact of the TADA member’s ongoing operations in the province as well as wider economic and environmental benefits associated with the provision of car dealership services such as sales of used cars and repair and maintenance services.
