Overview

  • Canada's electronic logging device mandate will go into effect on June 12, 2021, for federally regulated carriers and drivers as planned. However, on that date, enforcement will be educational and carriers and drivers will not face penalties for failing to use certified ELDs. Paper logs are allowed.
  • Carriers and drivers are encouraged to plan on making the switch to certified ELDs as soon as it's feasible.
  • An official enforcement timeline has not yet been established by Transport Canada and the Canadian jurisdictions, but we are monitoring the situation. This information will be updated as more details become available.
