Canadian ELD Mandate and Things You Should Know



With the mandate enforcement now taking place in January 2023, it is still important to find an ELD solution for your fleets soon. The impacts of COVID-19 are still being felt to this day, specifically in the supply chain sector. With chip shortages, the impact can be felt on the devices that are certified and available for fleets that require an ELD unit. In addition to availability becoming an issue, the cost of an ELD solution is destined to increase as well.



While the Canadian mandate is very similar to the American mandate, there are still quite a few notable differences. The main difference being the requirements for certification regarding devices. In Canada, devices must be tested and certified by an accredited third-party certification body. A list provided by Transport Canada with certified ELD solutions can be found here.


While an ELD solution will become mandatory come January 1, 2023, having a solution in place ahead of the enforcement date will provide your company with many benefits. Here are 5 benefits of an ELD solution.
