About Canada Drives

We believe that buying a car should be an amazing experience, so we did something about it. Canada Drives has reimagined car shopping for the 21st century!

As the nation's largest 100% online vehicle retailing and delivery platform, Canadians can shop hundreds of certified used cars and have their vehicle delivered to their doorstep with a click of a button.

We're a team of disruptors, breaking new ground at the intersection of e-commerce and automotive. We value innovation, creativity, and out-of-the-box thinking, and we're looking for high-energy pioneers to help us do things that have never been done before.

It's been a hugely exciting year for Canada Drives with the national launch of our online car sales platform (as seen on CTV news ), and we don't plan on slowing down anytime soon. The recent TechCrunch announcement of $100 million in funding means we can continue to rapidly grow our team and expand to new markets.

The automotive industry was stagnating but big changes are happening. Be a part of it-explore marketing opportunities with Canada Drives. Career-defining moments lie ahead...
