Changing times: More new cars on the road will lead to a larger customer base for operators

The Oil Change Services industry in Canada experienced consistent growth over the five years to 2019. With the economic recovery and rise in per capita disposable income, consumer demand for the do-it-yourself method of vehicle repair diminished during the reporting period.
