TORONTO, ON – November 3, 2022 – Toyota Canada will again be giving new vehicles to three organizations working to foster inclusion through increased physical accessibility in their communities. The company announced the launch of this year’s national Toyota Cars for GoodTM program, recognizing grassroots organizations focused on breaking down barriers to movement in communities across Canada.

Three organizations will each be awarded a brand-new 2023 Toyota vehicle valued at up to $90,000 with modifications that may be required for improved physical accessibility.

“Countless remarkable organizations across the country are working hard to build more inclusive and accessible communities,” said Cyril Dimitris, Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Toyota Canada. “The goal of the Toyota Cars for GoodTM program is to provide them with some of the support they need to continue to do their important work.”

Registered charitable organizations in Canada are encouraged to apply for the Toyota Cars for GoodTM program by December 31, 2022. The application includes a written submission about each organization’s mission and values; its local impact on reducing barriers to movement and fostering inclusion through physical accessibility; and how a new vehicle would benefit or enhance the organization’s community efforts.

All entries will be evaluated by a panel of judges from throughout the Canadian accessibility community.

In the summer of 2020, as part of their efforts to support Canadian communities during the pandemic, Toyota Canada and its dealers launched the local Toyota Cars For GoodTM program – an umbrella program providing short-term vehicle loans to local charitable organizations across the country.
