Important Info: Final Notices to Carriers Forthcoming on MTO Deferred Payment Plan for Licence Plates

In a notice received by OTA, the Ministry of Transportation (MTO) has indicated they will be issuing final notices in the coming weeks to vehicle owners who have not yet responded to initial communications directing them to use the online application at Heavy Commercial Vehicle Deferred Payment Plan ( to either make arrangements for the payment of outstanding fees or self-declare vehicles that were not operating during the extension period by December 31, 2022.

MTO introduced a deferred payment plan for owners of heavy commercial vehicles, including buses and farm vehicles, where licence plate sticker renewal fees were not paid during the extension period (March 1, 2020, to December 31, 2021). Under the payment plan, outstanding fees can be paid over a period of up to 24 months, interest free.

MTO further notes that after the December 31, 2022 deadline, operators will not be able to self-declare vehicles that were non-operational during the extension period and they will receive an invoice for the full amount  payable in January 2023.
