Porsche Canada Extends Roadside Assistance To All Hospital Front-Line Workers, Even Those Who Don’t Own a Porsche

If you work in healthcare in Ontario, Porsche Canada extends free roadside assistance to you.

  • You do not need to own a Porsche for this service.

  • Approximately 235,000 Ontario hospital workers are eligible.

  • The service will be offered from April 15 until May 31, 2020.


This is an impressive gesture, and one that demonstrates that people are a new focus. Porsche Canada is offering the approximate 235,000 Ontario hospital front-line workers its roadside assistance services whether or not you own a Porsche product, until May 31st, 2020.

Porsche, like most other manufacturers, has a “corporate social responsibility” principle that provides for situations like the current pandemic. In this instance, if you are a healthcare worker in Ontario, in order to qualify, all you need to do is call 1-800-PORSCHE in the event you require a tow, a boost, have a flat tire or need fuel. You will be asked to identify yourself by presenting your Ontario hospital-issued identification.

Marc Ouayoun, President & CEO, Porsche Cars Canada, said: “The world is experiencing one of the worst public health crises in its history and we are happy to offer a gesture to keep the valuable frontline workers moving as safely as possible. We recognize their tremendous contributions and feel that assisting in transportation issues during this time while they work towards the safety and wellbeing of Ontarians is our way to contribute to the greater good.”

Now, if you’re from another Province in Canada, you may or may not wonder why only Ontario. The simple of the answer is that Porsche Cars Canada, Ltd. (PCL) is headquartered in Toronto and the cost to extend such a program to the entire country would be potentially too great.
