In Ontario, there are a variety of options for you when you decide to let go of your vehicle. Some choose to either resell it privately or dissect the vehicle’s sellable parts and then take the rest of it to the scrap yard.
While these are all practical options, donating them to charity is another choice! The province offers special car donation programs and incentives to vehicle donors, and there are a lot of groups and private companies associated with charitable organizations that could help you out.
Why donate your car?
Choosing to donate your car in Ontario provides you with a number of benefits:
It’s for a good cause
Donating your vehicle for charitable reasons is a good way to give back to the community, especially those in need.
It’s a great help for a lot of charitable organizations
Some of these organizations operate under purely altruistic motives and often rely on donations and other forms of financial assistance to keep on operating. So, once you decide to donate your car, rest assured that it’s going to significantly help lots of people.
Vehicle donors get to enjoy special perks from the government, such as tax deductions for every automobile that they give up. For instance, you can receive up to $300 for each vehicle.
Donating your vehicle means that there’s no longer a need to put up an ad, go through stressful price negotiations, or even the time-consuming process of driving your vehicle around to show potential clients.

- Next, we will make sure to safely remove all hazardous fluids and metals in the vehicle.
- After that, the vehicle will be crushed, and the metals collected will be recycled to be converted into other functional materials.
