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.

On March 7, 2022, the Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators (CCMTA) released a message for industry confirming that all jurisdictions support a period of progressive enforcement without penalties until January 1, 2023, including elevated education and awareness for motor carriers and drivers.

These webpages will be updated with:

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