Incorporated in 1980, Canadian Automobile Sport Clubs Ontario Region (CASC-OR) is the FIA’s regional sporting authority for Ontario. With a mandate to foster the growth of club sport in Ontario, and to elevate the region’s profile in international automobile sport, CASC-OR encourages member participation in regional, national and international automobile events, and also endorses international participation in events within the region.

Some of the benefits to motorsports clubs, and their members, of affilation with CASC-OR are;
Access To Insurance
As Canada’s FIA-appointed National Sporting Authority, ASN Canada FIA negotiates a new motorsport insurance policy each year. In Ontario, access to coverages under this policy is granted exclusively to CASC-OR affiliated clubs.
Facilities and Equipment
Affiliated clubs have access to a pool of facilities and equipment, and Ontario’s most extensive and organized network of event officials. By facilitating increased communication between local clubs, as well as shared access to resources, CASC-OR helps maintain a high standard for event organization throughout the region.
Advocacy For Motorsports
In the collective interests of more than 2,000 affiliated members in 30 affiliate clubs, associations and industry associates, CASC-OR continuously identifies relevant and emerging issues in Ontario motorsport.
Our affiliates benefit from the efforts of executive and ad-hoc focus groups with expert members from throughout the region. Throughout its history, CASC-OR has enlisted the help of its knowledgeable member base to fulfil its role as Ontario’s motorsport authority.
Our committees investigate and advise on policies, laws and trends, with a mandate to serve the best interests of Ontario’s motorsport participants, clubs and supporting companies.
The results are seen in Ontario motorsport’s elevated standards of officiating, training, accreditation and technical preparation.
Marketing, Promotion, and Communication

We strive to keep enthusiasts informed and educated on all issues of significance to them.
How To Affiliate?
CASC-OR maintains a standardized affiliation procedure to ensure that affiliated clubs are based on principles consistent with the sport’s best interest. Clubs must be registered as Ontario non-profit corporations, maintaining a schedule of regular meetings held under observance of common procedural practice. Clubs that have existed for under a year can be affiliated on a probationary basis lasting the balance of twelve months from the club’s foundation. Voting privileges are held from a club until the end of its probationary period.
Applications require a separate, signed club resolution as outlined in the application form, as well as a full club membership list, and a copy of the club’s bylaws, constitution and/or letters patent. Minutes of at least 4 club meetings are also required, as well as CASC-OR’s affiliation fee, set annually by the board of directors.
