Canadian Hours of Service (Log Book)

Over the past several years, the Canadian provinces and territories have been working through the Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators (CCMTA) to modernize the commercial vehicle drivers’ hours of service rules by reflecting the advances in scientific research into human sleep patterns and fatigue management practices. The new rules were developed and supported by all Canadian jurisdictions and a broad spectrum of stakeholders. These rules reflect advances into research on fatigue and establish the maximum hours a driver can operate a commercial truck or bus on a highway.

The new hours of service rules will help commercial drivers get the necessary rest required to safely operate their vehicles.
