The Canadian Automobile Association, commonly known as CAA, is a non-profit federation, founded in 1913, of nine clubs across Canada, providing roadside assistance service, a range of auto touring and leisure travel services, insurance services, and member discounts. The CAA considers itself to be an advocate for Canada’s motorists and travellers, and is affiliated with the American Automobile Association of the United States. Many English-language TourBooks and maps about Canada distributed by CAA clubs are published by AAA, and carry both CAA and AAA branding. CAA is an active political lobby for Canadian car-owners, pursuing the interests of drivers in public consultations over urban planning and public transit. CAA Manitoba can trace its origins to the creation of the Winnipeg Auto Club in 1904, the first club of its kind in Canada. The organization later evolved into the Manitoba Motor League, becoming an integral part of motoring history in the province - from developing the first road map, to marking highways, to implementing road safety programs. The MML was renamed CAA Manitoba in 1993. Today CAA Manitoba represents more than 190,000 members and has expanded beyond emergency road service to include a full service travel agency, home and property insurance and travel products. CAA Manitoba is actively engaged in advocacy issues, most recently with its 'Move Over Manitoba' campaign to convince the provincial government to extend to tow truck operators the same protective measures that cover emergency roadside personnel.
