Add A Little Extra Protection

First Canadian - Platinum Shield Auto Protection

Keep your vehicle looking and feeling like new.
Your new vehicle has to battle the wear and tear of our harsh Canadian climate. Strong UV rays, extreme heat or cold, snow and ice, rain and humidity, road salt, and pollutants can harm your car’s beauty and its functions.

Platinum Shield’s market-leading technologies will defend your vehicle exterior and interior against harsh conditions.

Interior Protection

A driver’s spilled coffee or a child’s sloppy snack are mishaps you can almost always expect for your vehicle's interior, but what about bigger messes and more unexpected mishaps? A cut from a hockey skate, or a tear from a forgotten object in your pocket? An accidental spray that stains your headliner? With Platinum Shield Interior Protection, you can get:

  • Fabric Protection: An invisible barrier that prevents liquids from soaking in and ensures easy clean-up of spills. It penetrates individual fibres in the fabric to repel moisture and dirt and prevent permanent staining, while allowing the treated fabric to breathe. This treatment won’t change the colour or texture of the fabric or leave a residual odour.
  • Leather/Vinyl Protection: A penetrating conditioner that protects against cracking and hardening of leather or vinyl by locking in essential oils and pigments and screening against the sun’s powerful UV rays. The flat satin finish of a protected dashboard eliminates glare and reduces dust.
  • Rip, Tear or Burn Guarantee: An upgrade that guarantees against perforation due to accidental rips, tears or burns. It requires either Fabric or Leather/Vinyl Protection.

Paint Protection

The sun's powerful UV rays will cause your vehicle's paint to fade and the clear-coat finish on your vehicle’s painted surface is uneven, allowing dirt, salt, pollutants, and moisture to get trapped. This can dull your vehicle’s finish, ruin its look, and affect its resale value.

Platinum Shield Paint Protection is a long-lasting sealant that enhances the paint’s clear coating. It protects paint from fading by reflecting UV rays and its durable finish leaves the surface significantly smoother with no need for waxing.

An Environmental Paint Guarantee upgrade is available for vehicle plans which also protects against damage caused by acid rain, tree sap, and bird droppings.

Undercoat Protection

Canadian roads and weather conditions are hard on your vehicle. Deep puddles, uneven pavement, loose gravel, and road salt can all shorten the life of your vehicle's undercarriage.
Undercoat protection is specially formulated to preserve a car’s most vulnerable, high-impact areas. It seals out moisture and protects against road salt. Because of its pliability, it won’t crack, peel or chip.

First Canadian - Platinum Key and Remote Protection

An easy solution to lost, stolen, and damaged keys and remotes.
Most vehicles today come with technologically advanced keys and remotes, and the cost to repair or replace and reprogram them can be unexpectedly steep.

Platinum Key & Remote Exchange provides up to 5 years of coverage for the costs associated with:

  • Deprogramming your previous key or remote
  • Purchasing your new/refurbished key or remote
  • Reprogramming your new key or remote
  • Delivering your new key or remote


First Canadian - Platinum Tire & Rim Protection

Protect your tires and wheels from road hazards.

Over the course of their life, your tires will take a beating. Unfortunately, road hazards such as debris from other vehicles, nails and screws, fallen rocks, or broken glass can cause damage that prevents your tire or rim from even holding air.

Platinum Tire & Rim Protection provides up to 5 years of coverage for damage caused by road hazards, including:

  • Damaged tire or rim repair (including mounting, balancing, and installation costs as well as any taxes or levies)
  • Damaged tire or rim replacement if repairs cannot be done
  • Tire change or towing assistance

Coverage applies to both original and replacement tires.  Coverage is not prorated, is transferable, and there are no deductibles. Platinum Tire & Rim Protection is available for both new and used vehicles.

First Canadian - AutoGuard

Dents, dings, scratches, cuts – don’t worry, we’ll fix them.

Do you experience a sinking feeling when you hear another car door open into yours? Or cringe when you see a grocery cart scrape the side of a car?

AutoGuard protects against these small but agonizing accidents. AutoGuard covers the cost to repair:

  • Dents and dings up to 10cm in width or length that can be removed with Paintless Dent Removal.
