The Dilawri Automotive Group is passionate about giving back to the community we call home. This June, we're putting our money where our tailpipes are…through our Vehicle of Giving.


First, we have teamed up with Gerry Forbes from CJAY 92 and Don & Joanne from XL103. For every vehicle sold at our Calgary dealerships in June, the Dilawri Automotive Group will donate $100 to Gerry Forbes' Secret Wish program, which helps families bridge the gap during incredibly tough times, and Don & Joanne's Golf a Kid to Camp, a fundraiser for Kids Cancer Care which sends kids who are battling cancer to camp.

And …pennies will be out of circulation soon, so why not put yours towards these two causes? Drop off your pennies in June at any of our Calgary-area dealerships. Pennies collected will be matched by Bank of Montreal and the Dilawri Automotive Group and donated to these two groups.  

We’re honoured to be able to help.

Here’s where you come in. If you have friends, family or colleagues looking to purchase a vehicle or just find a good home for their pennies, encourage them to head to a Dilawri dealership in Calgary. Every vehicle sold means more lives will be touched and more wishes will be granted.


Coast to Coast: Four Great Canadian Driving Roads

Travel writer Kasey Wilson puts it succinctly: "Road tripping is the quintessential travel tale. The only question is where to?" With almost 900,000 kilometres of road to explore in Canada, there are a lot of destinations to explore. We searched and found four of Canada’s most spectacular driving roads: quintessential motoring destinations that make the journey the true destination.

Let’s start on the Pacific Coast, with the Malahat Drive, also known as the Malahat Highway. Located on the southern part of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, the road was once used for spiritual enchantment. Today, the Malahat Mountain Peak is still regarded as one of the most sacred sites on the island, though it is entirely drivable. The route consists of a series of swooping hills and valleys adorned with Arbutus trees, framing spectacular views. The drive connects Victoria to the Cowichan Valley.

Moving into the Canadian Rockies of Alberta, our next destination is the Icefields Parkway, also titled Highway 93 north. 230 kilometres of captivating sights, including the expected jagged peaks of the Rockies, waterfalls, active glaciers, and of course, ice fields. Besides scenic beauty, with any luck you’ll also encounter the splendor of
the animal kingdom: wild moose, big
horn sheep (look for them perched on mountain “ledges”), and elk. Writer Paul Buchanan suggests before completing your journey, visit the observation
deck of Sulphur Mountain for a final
striking view of the Icefields – the
perfect photo op.

Sweeping into Ontario, set your course for the town of Gravenhurst, and a 36 kilometre driving escapade named Southwood Road. The hilly landscape, deep green forests, and rocky topography decorate this gravel-sectioned gem. Don’t be in too much of a hurry, though: A 60 kmph speed limit is enforced on the narrow lanes with their many hairpin corners.

It’s been a long trip, but now we’ve reached the Maritimes, and we have an opportunity to compare the Atlantic and Pacific coastlines. Nova Scotia’s Cabot Trail measures 299 kilometres and features gorgeous views of the Cape Breton coastline, leading on to grand uplands that turn riotous with color in the fall, plus some striking stretches where mountains meet the sea. Along the way, the Highlands National Park provides a perfect venue for hiking and camping. Jeffrey Lansdell, author of Ten Great Canadian Driving Roads, notes "Throughout the trail, you’ll find a colourful tapestry of woodland, tundra and bogs, and the Maritime breeze will force you to relax and just drive."
