Incorporated in 1961, ADANL seeks to work pro-actively with government to ensure the retailing of automobiles in Newfoundland and Labrador is done with a sense of responsibility of service to the community and the province at large.
ADANL is a member of CADA - The Canadian Automobile Dealers Association. Dealers do not join CADA directly, they join their respective Provincial Associations which give them access to CADA Services. CADA is a national federation of new vehicle dealers representing over 3500 dealerships in Canada. CADA is active at the federal level with regards to government and industry relations. They also develop and deliver a number of member services through its CADA 360 Benefits Program which include Retirement and Insurance products for its members.
Supporting the Community
As an association, we collect a portion of the proceeds from every new car and light truck sale and donate it to charity. In the last 5 years alone, ADANL has donated an average of $20,000 per year back to the community. We look for opportunities to support charities province wide.
Newfoundland and Labrador's dealers operate a multi-billion dollar retail industry. In 2016 the total retail sales of new vehicles in the province representated $2.0 Billion. The total revenues for the sale of new motor vehicles was $1.18 Billion of which 28.1% were from passenger car sales and 71.9% truck sales.
Dealers provide thousands of well paying jobs in Newfoundland and Labrador. The average weekly employment in automobile dealerships is 2,650 people whos amount of weekly earnings exceed the average weekly retail wage by $494.
