History

Carpages.ca was founded in 2004 by Autopath Technologies Inc. as an online automotive marketing platform to connect car buyers with car sellers. The company headquartered in Mississauga, Ontario. The platform started offering a full automotive product line that includes used car listing, nearby dealers, finance and insurance related services. In 2015, Carpages.ca partnered with Carfax Canada to enhance functionality like adding vehicle history and recall alerts to the website's shopping and vehicle information pages. In April 2019, a new mobile inventory tool was released to integrate multiple online marketplaces in realtime: Carpages.ca, Kijiji, AutoTrader, CarGurus, and Facebook Marketplace. Vehicle listings can be created and edited by scanning a vehicle's VIN and the information is automatically uploaded into the listing form fields.

Amidst the Covid-19 Pandemic In April 2020, Carpages.ca started a contactless way to buy a car.“Buy From Home”, allows buyers to tour, inspect, and sign documents online.[2] Once a vehicle is purchased, the dealer drops off the disinfected car at the new owner's home.[3][4]
