About Us

Since its incorporation in 1961, ADANL has been dedicated to proactively working with the government to ensure responsible and community-oriented automobile retailing in Newfoundland and Labrador. As a member of the Canadian Automobile Dealers Association (CADA), ADANL plays a vital role in representing the interests of dealerships in the province. Through our membership in CADA, we gain access to valuable services and resources that benefit our members. CADA, as a national federation of new vehicle dealerships, represents over 3500 dealerships across Canada and actively engages in government and industry relations. Their comprehensive CADA 360 Benefits Program offers retirement and insurance products, among others, to our members.

Supporting the Community

At ADANL, we believe in giving back to the community. A portion of the proceeds from every new car and light truck sale goes towards charitable donations. Over the past five years, ADANL has donated an average of $20,000 per year to support various charities province-wide. We actively seek opportunities to make a positive impact in the communities we serve.


Economic Impact

The automobile industry in Newfoundland and Labrador is a significant contributor to the provincial economy. In 2019 alone, the retail sales of new vehicles amounted to $2.0 billion, with the sale of new motor vehicles generating $1.2 billion in revenue. Passenger car sales accounted for 17.0%, while truck sales constituted 83.0% of the total revenues.

Moreover, automobile dealerships in Newfoundland and Labrador provide thousands of well-paying jobs. With an average weekly employment of 2,450 people, the earnings of dealership employees exceed the average weekly retail wage by $663.00.
