Vehicle Data Ownership
More and more news outlets are reporting on the issue of who owns the data modern cars gather about their drivers. And when they do, they call AIA Canada to hear our opinion.

AIA Canada @AIAofCanada 
Will your business have access to the vehicle data it needs to stay in business?: "When cars can tell a service provider or part supplier what repair or maintenance parts to order, retailers will face a whole new set of challenges."
