Every year the Automotive Journalist Association of Canada (AJAC) hold TestFest at Niagara-on-the-Lake’s airport. AJAC members from across Canada assemble to test drive new vehicles under the same conditions and circumstances. Upon completing test-drives, journalist’s vote for the vehicle that they believe is best in its’ class. Once each class has a selected winner, the vehicles are tested and voted again for Car of the Year. For further details on AJAC and Car of the Year please visit http://www.ajac.ca/web/ccoty/. The purpose of the Canadian Car of the Year Awards (CCOTY) program, created by journalist members of the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC), is to provide consumers with sound, comparative information on vehicles that are new to the market.
Each year AJAC hires students for the entire week from the Automotive Business School of Canada at Georgian College for the unique opportunity to take part in the operations of TestFest. The opportunity gives students first- hand experience with event planning and in addition the opportunity to meet manufacturer representatives from all the automotive brands and a variety of internationally known journalists.
