Get ready to launch Auto Propane Day - Wednesday, November 4!

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

This year’s international Auto Propane Day takes place Wednesday, November 4, 2020. This dedicated event, created by the World LPG Association last year, is designed to promote the benefits of auto propane, including its contribution to cleaner air, its proven safety and reliability, and low costs.

We will have much to celebrate on this day as we see auto propane becoming the fuel of choice for school boards and transportation providers across Canada. Most recently, the Halifax Regional Centre for Education contracted Calgary-based Southland Transportation Ltd. to provide 140 propane buses for their school district, which are being launched in fall. This is in addition to the 18 propane buses New Brunswick began piloting last year and Red Car Service in Guelph, ON recently expanded their propane fleet to limos.

The CPA will once again put together social media materials for you to post on your social media platforms.

In addition to the social media campaign, we also encourage you to organize activities on November 4. Activities to promote auto propane could include:

  • Partnering up with a local car dealer to promote propane vehicles and set up test drives
  • Partnering with companies that offer vehicle conversions to auto propane and invite local government, media and other stakeholders to your event

If you host an event, don’t forget to take photos and post on social media so that we can reply to further amplify the posts.

The CPA has designed a promotional banner for outside use that can be posted into the ground to help support any activities that you may plan for your campaign. The main design of the banner is shown here but you may personalize it and add your own logo. The cost per banner is $380+ taxes and shipping* and can be ordered by filling in the Instant Imprints Order Form and emailing it to:

We will be updating the auto propane section of our website with video footage and information on the new propane buses recently contracted by the Halifax school district (see Great news - Growing auto propane market in Atlantic Canada). The launch will be taking place in October. We will keep you posted as new material becomes available.

Let’s work together to promote auto propane and raise awareness about one of the cleanest, safest alternative fuels available!
