About the Automotive Recyclers of Canada (ARC)

Who We Are

Formed in 1997 as an “association of associations”, the Automotive Recyclers of Canada (ARC) is the national voice of the automotive recycling industry, representing, through its provincial affiliates, approximately 400 end-of-live vehicle (ELV) recyclers and dismantlers throughout Canada.

In addition to providing a forum for the channelling of information and addressing Canada wide concerns, we are actively involved in the leadership, promotion and betterment of the automotive recycling industry across the country.

Over the past few years, we have developed and implemented the Canadian Automotive Recyclers Environmental Code (CAREC) to help standardize the process for recycling End-of-Life Vehicles (ELV’s) and protect our water, air and soil from the harmful materials contained therein. This stringent Code was originally developed by ARC to support the National Vehicle Scrappage Program (Retire Your Ride). It includes minimum compliance requirements to properly and legally process a vehicle, along with best practices and basic housekeeping guidance.

CAREC has now been adopted by all of our Member Associations as a requirement of membership. Each of their members have been evaluated, audited and certified by an independent third party to meet the requirements of the Code.
