    Given a warning: not having my trailer plate number on top of the daily log and the inspection portion. Am i required to do that?

    February 13, 2019

    Dear Marc,

    We have been notified by DOT inspectors in Northern Ontario that we are required to have the trailer plate number in the top of our Elog and not only in the inspection portion. We received a warning and were told that the next time it will be a $385.00 fine. Would you be able to please clarify?

    Backgrounder - Canada ELD Mandate

    January 04, 2019

    With the ELD mandate in full effect in the United States, the Government of Canada has unveiled a draft of its own ELD plan north of the 49th parallel.

    Much like the case with the U.S. ELD rules, the electronic logging regulations in Canada will apply to federally regulated motor carriers and commercial drivers of trucks and buses.

    Some provincial jurisdiction may adopt the federal rules by reference, or may elect to follow the strategy of some U.S. States by adopting an ELD mandate at a later date. No further information is known on such timelines at time of writing.
