CAA Clubs offer free services to healthcare workers and first responders

25.03.20

In view of the global outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Canadian Automobile Association (CAA) is offering free services to health care workers and first responders. 
Front-line workers – Members and non-Members alike – can benefit from the services.

CAA wants to ensure these essential workers can get to and from work safely. That is why some CAA Clubs are offering free roadside service to health care workers and emergency responders, whether they are a CAA member or not.

This service is currently available in Ontario and Manitoba, but more Clubs are contemplating adding the service in their region. 

In addition to this great initiative, the British Columbia Club (BCAA) is offering a unique service through its carshare subsidiary, EVO. BCAA has lent EVO vehicles to the provincial health care authority, which will in turn distribute these cars to healthcare workers and front-line workers for 30 days or more. This provides workers who don’t have their own vehicles with a safer, more convenient way to travel than public transit. 

Other CAA Clubs have stepped up with innovative ideas during this period of self-isolation: CAA Niagara is delivering flowers to those who have been Members for 50 years or more, and CAA North and East Ontario, the Ottawa-based Club, is using its call centre to do wellness checks, which Members can request for themselves or their loved ones.
