ONGOING PARTNERSHIPS WITH MPI

On October 16 to 20, 2017 - MAAC was invited by MPI to participate in the 2017 International RCAR Conference held in Winnipeg. 

RCAR is an international body of automotive research centres that perform research to improve vehicle damage resistance, reparability, security, and safety. Membership in RCAR includes representation from more than 20 countries in Europe, Asia, and North and South America. Manitoba Public Insurance is the only Canadian member of RCAR, and was honoured to host this distinguished international forum this year.

The Vehicle Technology Showcase was a key part of the conference. Taking place at Manitoba Public Insurance's new Centre of Excellence in Automotive Research and Training at 1981 Plessis Road, the showcase highlighted the dramatic and exciting developments underway in vehicle manufacturing and design, including the latest trends in electric vehicles, autonomous vehicles, and vehicles featuring the latest in complex materials. It also showcased classic and collector vehicles to demonstrate the significance of changes to vehicle design, construction, automation, and reparability over time. In addition to conference delegates, the event was also be open to the automotive trades and to Manitoba Public Insurance staff.
