The Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators (CCMTA) is an incorporated body that coordinates matters dealing with the administration, regulation and control of motor vehicle transportation and highway safety. Membership includes representation from provincial and territorial governments as well as the federal government of Canada.
We've been active for over 80 years, as such, CCMTA has the breadth, depth and reach into the areas of efficient movement of people and goods and in the area of saving lives on Canada's roads, while respecting jurisdictional autonomy to implement as appropriate.
The amended Federal Hours of Service (HoS) regulations requiring carriers to install Electronic Logging Devices (ELD) in all Federally regulated commercial motor vehicles came into effect June 12, 2021. There is a regulatory requirement from Transport Canada that all ELD devices are certified by an accredited third-party in Canada.
Industry is advised to ensure any procured ELD is certified by a third-party certification body accredited by the Minister of Transport. Devices certified by accredited certifications bodies for use in Canada can be found on the Transport Canada link below: www.tc.gc.ca/en/services/road/electronic-logging-devices.html
If you have questions related to ELDs please contact the jurisdiction in which you reside. You will find a list of the provincial, territorial and Transport Canada contacts and websites here.
Version 2 of the Canadian Jurisdictional Guidelines for the Safe Testing and Deployment of Vehicles Equipped with Automated Driving Systems is now available.
