Canada Parliment

March 2, 2021. Minister of Transportation, Omar Alghabra, issued a statement reaffirming the June 12, 2021 go-live date for mandatory ELDs in Canada: Transport Canada Update

He stated that there will be a ‘progressive enforcement period’, where early enforcement measures will consist of education and awareness.
