I’ve been asked this question numerous times since the Canadian government announced that full implementation of the electronic logging device (ELD) mandate was being pushed to Jan. 1, 2023.

This is the second delay for the mandate, initially scheduled to take effect on June 12, 2021. While the first delay was needed due to a lack of approved devices, that is no longer the case.

There are now dozens of approved ELDs, covering the majority of trucks operating on Canadian highways. Instead, the spotlight has ­shifted to whether law enforcement agencies across Canada are ready to enforce the regulation.

You can read more on my thoughts about the ELD delay in this “perspective” piece recently published by Transport Topics. Included in the article is my advice to any fleet still putting off transitioning from paper logs to ELDs, and a discussion on whether there could be another delay.
