The Ontario Motor Vehicle Industry Council (OMVIC) is a government delegated authority administering and enforcing laws that motor vehicle dealers and salespeople must follow. We protect the public interest by protecting and raising awareness of consumer rights and enhancing industry professionalism for registered motor vehicle dealers and salespeople.
Buying a motor vehicle is one of the most important financial commitments you will ever make. Do your research, understand the process and make sure you're purchasing from an OMVIC-registered dealer or salesperson.
There are over 8,000 dealers and 30,000 salespeople registered with OMVIC in Ontario.
Use our database to check if your dealer or salesperson is registered with OMVIC.
All disciplinary decisions are public.
It is possible a consumer complaint may lead to an investigation and possible charges.
If you are in the market for a new vehicle, we have all the resources and support you need to make an informed purchase.
From registering to professional development, OMVIC is your guide to operating within Ontario's laws and regulations.
