After running for 22-years, AirCare was cancelled in 2014. As described on Wikipedia, it’s intended purpose was to…
…improve air quality in British Columbia, Canada through the systematic testing of road vehicles in order to reduce their emissions. AirCare was cancelled due to the fact that new vehicles were continuously becoming more eco-friendly, and the percentage of old cars on the road was decreasing.
That being said, there is still the necessity for vehicle owners to have auto emission repairs conducted, which we are happy to provide here in Port Moody!
