Ontario SPIF Survey:  State of the Industry for Phase 4 of Regulatory Reforms (Straight Trucks and Straight Trucks with Trailers)

The following letter was received by OTA from MTO regarding a survey looking to determine the state of SPIF vehicle availability, specifically with regards to straight trucks and straight trucks with trailers.

MTO is asking industry members with Straight Trucks to take the survey to provide MTO a clear view of the situation.  Your information will go direct to MTO and not through the OTA.  Responses are due by November 6, 2020.:

The Ministry of Transportation is seeking to better gauge the age of commercial vehicle fleets and the state of industry that will be impacted by the end of initial grandfathering through Phase 4 of the regulatory reforms toward O.Reg. 413/05, Vehicle Weights and Dimensions implemented on July 1st, 2011 toward Safe Productive Infrastructure Friendly (SPIF) vehicles.  Specifically, we are interested in gauging the interest and expected level of in the demand for extended grandfather permits at the end of initial grandfathering, December 31, 2020.

We want to hear from your membership, and are seeking your assistance to circulate the survey link below (Survey Monkey) for their voluntary participation.  


Results of the survey will be sent directly to MTO and will help us better understand the potential uptake in grandfathering permits. Unfortunately time is limited and we are seeking input before November 6, 2020.

If you have any questions about the survey please contact Matthew.Verrall@ontario.ca .

We thank you in advance for your assistance with this work.
