✅Canada’s ELD Timeline
✅Transport Canada remains committed to the June 12, 2021 deadline for mandatory ELD’s in Canada.
Many carriers have expressed rollout concerns on two fronts:
- The impact of Covid 19. Many staff, especially administrators, are still working from home. This can bog down the ELD implementation and training protocols.
- There is still no ELD certification body. Every ELD system will have to be certified by a third party tester. The tester, or testers, aren’t yet available. The impact could be significant if the ELD system you’re using can’t get certified for some reason.
We’re recommending sticking with the most popular ELD providers who have a large customer base. They will be most likely to allocate the resources to ensure that they get certified.
