A motor vehicle registration authority has noted that a vehicle’s ownership has been transferred from one party to another.

Transfer of ownership from a dealership, wholesale auto auction or other similar business is not typically identified as a “new owner reported” on a CARFAX Canada Vehicle History Report unless the vehicle has been actively plated and/or confirmed to have been used by that business for “business/commercial” use (such as a loaner vehicle, service shuttle, etc.)

CARFAX Canada does not receive, nor can we obtain, personally identifiable information for vehicle owners. Names of the vehicles previous owners will not be displayed on a CARFAX Canada Vehicle History Report.

To verify if a vehicle’s seller is also the current owner of the vehicle, please verify the registered owner listed on the ownership/registration document and/or please contact your province’s vehicle registration authority.
