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.
On May 5, 2021, the Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators (CCMTA) released a communique for industry confirming that all jurisdictions support a period of progressive enforcement without penalties until June 12, 2022, 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.
