ELDs East Report: Update for OTA Members

Information provided to OTA by the Quebec Trucking Association (QTA) notes that effective April 30 , 2023, the Province of Quebec is now fully enforcing the ELD mandate for all carriers operating in the province. In addition, QTA has confirmed the province will be issuing monetary fines and carrier profile points as part of the enforcement regime and will have the authority to enact regulatory shutdown measures for gross non-compliance.  The move forward in Quebec brings the province in line with Ontario, which began enforcing ELD requirements for all carriers operating in the province effective January 1, 2023.  For additional details on the ELD mandate in Quebec from Société de l’assurance Automobile du Québec (SAAQ) , including frequently asked questions and obligations of carriers and drivers, please click here.

Meanwhile, all jurisdictions in Atlantic Canada are enforcing the ELD mandate for federally regulated carriers, according to the Atlantic Provinces Trucking Association (APTA). New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island (not enforced due to PEI being within 160 km of itself) require ELDs for intra-provincial carriers. Nova Scotia and Newfoundland and Labrador will be introducing intra-provincial requirements at a later date (NS projected Jan ‘24, NL projected later in ‘23).

The Quebec Trucking Association, Atlantic Provinces Trucking Association and the Ontario Trucking Association are all members of the Canadian Trucking Alliance. For more details on the Canadian Trucking Alliance and the provincial association members in western, central and eastern Canada that make up the Alliance, click here.
