The mission of the ASSOCIATION DES RECYCLEURS DE PIÈCES D’AUTOS ET DE CAMIONS (ARPAC) IN QUEBEC is to be the leader in the sale of high-quality, controlled-origin recycled car and truck parts with a view to respect for the Quebec environment.
ARPAC currently has 75 members across Quebec.
20 years of ARPAC (1971-2011)
ARPAC is an association recognized for its strict standards and the integrity of its members. It has the attention of the key players in the automotive industry, represented by the IBC, GAA, DSE, SAAQ, Recyc-Québec, Sûreté du Québec, municipal police forces and Canadian insurance companies.
ARPAC members adhere to a Code of Ethics, which demands:
integrity and honesty of the Association and its members;
transparency in all actions and co-operation among members for the achievement of a common goal;
respect and attentive listening to understand the members’ priorities and encourage their involvement;
commitment to respecting the environment and providing education on the standards.
Work with Government Bodies
ARPAC can be counted among the decision makers who are fashioning the automotive industry of tomorrow. During the parliamentary committee hearings on Bill 12, ARPAC presented and strongly defended a brief which led to the full adoption of the proposed definition of a recycler.

Board of directors of Auto-Prévention;
Centre patronal de santé et sécurité du travail du Québec;
Consultation table on the environment and road vehicles;
The government-industry consultation table on the automobile population.
