What Is The Expo?

The Canadian Automotive Expo’s purpose is to combine efforts from the custom tuner, truck, classic car and road racing communities to come together for a good cause and enjoy our passion together. For 2018 our attentions have turned to supporting people living with a rare disease called Vanishing White Matter. Through our raffle and 50/50 on Saturday, September 15th, 2018 we will be raising a cash donation towards the Vanishing White Matter Families Foundation. As we promote the CAE, in the spirit of building a strong and thriving enthusiast community we also make sure to be supporting other charitable shows through cross promotion and actually attending ourselves. Wheels for Wishes in support of Children’s Wish and The Nokia Charity Automotive Show in support of the Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Support Programs are two such shows, and you should check them out!
