CARPROOF Rebranding as Carfax Canada

LONDON, ON, March 19, 2018 – CARPROOF Corporation announced today that its name will change to Carfax Canada in October 2018. The change further aligns CARPROOF, Canada’s best source of automotive data, and Carfax, the U.S.-based industry leader, to better serve its consumer and dealer customers by leveraging the globally known Carfax brand. Both companies are owned by IHS Markit.


“We want our customers to know that this is a change in name only,” says Shawn Vording, vice-president of automotive sales at CARPROOF. “Our partners will still receive the comprehensive history and valuation information they have come to expect from CARPROOF. This decision was driven by our commitment to continuous growth and will allow us to provide better products and services to a greater audience.”

Customers with questions about this change are encouraged to reach out to Shawn Vording directly at or 1.866.835.8612 ext. 2966.
