Canadians can have their vehicle repaired wherever they choose. Diagnostic and repair information, vehicle software updates, and tools, for all vehicle types, including gas, electric, and diesel, is available to any service provider in Canada.

Access to this information is guaranteed under the Canadian Automotive Service Information Standard (CASIS), an agreement between the automotive aftermarket and automakers signed in 2010. The agreement gives the automotive aftermarket access to repair and service information at a level equivalent to that of their independent authorized dealers.
