Who We Are

The Motor Dealer's Association of Alberta (MDA) strives to serve the collective interest of all its members and promote positive relationships with government, industry, suppliers, consumers and media, by offering needed and effective programs and services. Our members include over 90% of Alberta's franchised new vehicle and heavy truck dealerships.

The MDA is a not-for-profit, industry trade association with only two paid staff: Denis Ducharme, President and Denise Desmarais, Executive Assistant. The MDA is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of representatives from across the Province of Alberta, and an executive committee.


Todd Ducharme - Chairman

  • I grew up in Southern Alberta in a small town.
  • I enjoy small town life where you can get involved and make a difference.
  • I have been in the GM Dealership business for over 30 years, here in Westlock since 1996.
