Canadian ELog Mandate FAQs
FAQs about Canada's ELog mandate and hours of service rules.
Canada’s electronic logging device (ELD) mandate has been in the making for at least six years, and it was finally adopted on June 12, 2019. The mandate is effective for all federally-regulated carriers starting on June 12, 2021.
