Electronic logging devices

Electronic logging devices (ELDs) are equipment that automatically record driving time in commercial motor vehicles. This helps make sure that drivers are compliant with hours of service regulations resulting in reduced fatigue for drivers, improved administrative efficiency and safer roads in Canada.

Please see the news statement from Minister Alghabra on electronic logging devices for commercial vehicles on March 2, 2021.

These webpages will be updated with:

  • information on testing and certification of ELDs.
  • updates on regulatory requirements that apply to road-side enforcement.
