About CAA Insurance

Canadian Automobile Association (CAA) and the CAA Insurance company has a long history. Their origins began in 1903 with the Toronto Automobile Club, a group of drivers who lobbied to increase the speed limit from eight to ten miles per hour.

In 1913, the CAA was born through the amalgamation of the Manitoba Motor League, Saskatchewan Motor Club, and the Ontario Motor League (OML). Since then, over 6 million Canadians have become members of CAA and benefit from 24/7 roadside assistance and discounts to retailers, local attractions and events.

They are a not-for-profit organization. Their main office is in Ottawa, but they have regional groups and associations Canada-wide.

CAA Insurance has been offering Canadians affordable car insurance since the 1930s. CAA Insurance has become more than car insurance and roadside assistance. They are advocates for safe driving. They were at the front of adding seatbelts and continue to educate about driving high and distracted driving.
