Ontario’s latest Budget does not include a provision for dealers to electronically register and license vehicles.
The Trillium Automobile Dealers Association (TADA) recently expressed their disappointment about the fact that Ontario’s 2017 Budget does not include Bill 3, the Cutting Red Tape for Motor Vehicle Dealers Act.
If passed, Bill 3 would have allowed automobile dealers in Ontario to electronically register and license the vehicles they sell or lease—rather than having to physically transport paperwork back and forth to a licensing office.
“Ontario should provide in-dealership registration and licensing that has been available to Quebec dealers since 2002, and to New York State dealers since the mid-1990s,” said Frank Notte, Director of Government Relations, TADA. “Individuals and businesses make highly secure, digital transactions everyday—vehicle registrations should be no different.”
