The GM Mobility Program at Grizzly Trail Motors
At General Motors, they understand just how important mobility is if you have a disability.
That's why they created the GM Mobility Program. It's designed to help people with disabilities access the resources they need, and get a reimbursement of up to $1,000 towards the cost of adapting an eligible GM vehicle*.
To help you find the equipment and vehicle that's right for you, we've included the information you'll need and a number of links in the following pages, as well as a helpful overview you can download and keep.
Getting the vehicle you love adapted with the right equipment can be a simple process. To start, we recommend you:
Obtain an evaluation or visit your medical practitioner
First find a driver assessment facility and arrange for a complete evaluation. There are a number of facilities across the country, but if you're not sure where to find one, you can always get in touch with the Ministry of Transportation or contact us at the GM Mobility Program. Your assessment should include suggestions about your driving and a list of vehicle modification recommendations.
If you already know what kind of adaptive equipment you need, you won't need an evaluation. Your equipment installer will only need a physician's authorization form.
Contact the Provincial Ministry of Transportation
In most provinces, people are required to report any changes in their medical status to the Provincial Ministry of Transportation. When you report a change in your medical status, the Ministry may conduct a medical review, and may need to alter your driving privileges for your safety. Also keep in mind that failure to report a change in your medical status may put your driver's licence status in jeopardy all together.
* Up to $1,000 (tax exclusive) credit available on an eligible new 2015, 2016 or 2017 MY Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac delivered by January 3, 2017 to eligible customers. Only certain equipment and adaptations are acceptable for the credit under the program. Proof of eligibility must be provided upon request. GM Canada may modify or terminate program in whole or in part at any time without notice. See dealer for details.

Purchase FinancingPurchase financing is an instalment sale transaction between you and your dealer where you agree to pay the amount financed, plus an agreed-upon finance charge, over a period of time.
Leasing¥1Although leasing is only an option for certain vehicles, it lets you take advantage of a low initial down payment. Leasing also means you can drive a new vehicle more often without having to worry about resale or trade-in hassles.
¥ With leasing, the lessee does not own the vehicle. It must be returned to the GM Dealer at the end of the lease. The lessee may choose to purchase the vehicle for the Option to Purchase Price stated at lease signing.
1 Leased vehicles must have lessor's written approval prior to adapting vehicle.
How can I make sure my vehicle is eligible?
For the GM Mobility Reimbursement Program, in effect until January 3, 2016, you must purchase or lease 1 a new 2014, 2015or 2016 Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac. To confirm eligibility of your vehicle call the GM Mobility Assistance Centre at 1-800-GM-DRIVE. You will need your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). Confirmation of vehicle eligibility does not imply claim approval.
Can I use the reimbursement with other factory rebates and incentives?
Yes. Speak to your Dealer about other offers available to you.
I don't see my adaptive equipment on your eligibility list. How do I find out if I can reimbursed?
How soon after I purchase or lease my new vehicle do I have to complete the equipment installation and apply for reimbursement?
To take advantage of the GM Mobility Reimbursement Program, you must have the vehicle adapted and submit a claim within 6 months of the date of purchase/lease. Other program rules apply.
Are there any other ways I can offset the cost of purchasing adaptive equipment?
The Canadian government does offer tax credits and rebate programs for some adaptive equipment. Contact your Provincial Ministry of Transportation for more information.
Where can I find a qualified equipment installer?
If you're not sure where to find qualified installers in your area, the National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association (NMEDA), your provincial rehabilitation services agency and the Ministry of Transportation are good sources of information. You can also use the NMEDA search tool to find an adaptive equipment dealer near you.
Where can I get a driver evaluation?
There are a number of facilities across the country, but if you're not sure where to find one, you can always get in touch with your local Ministry of Transportation or contact us at the GM Mobility Program at 1-800-GM-DRIVE
