Regulatory Framework Consultation Document
Regulating Heavy-Duty Vehicle Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Environment Canada has prepared a Regulatory Framework consultation document to seek early views from interested parties on key elements being considered for future regulations to limit greenhouse gas emissions from new on-road heavy-duty vehicles and engines of the 2014 and later model years. Canada's heavy-duty vehicle regulations will be aligned with those of the United States.

Comments received on the Regulatory Framework will assist in developing the proposed regulations. Consultation will continue with the transportation and vehicle manufacture industries, environmental non-governmental organizations, provinces/territories and other stakeholders throughout the regulatory development process. Proposed regulations are intended to be developed for pre-publication in the Canada Gazette, Part I, in mid-2011 to provide for a formal 60-day consultation. Final regulations are targeted for December 2011 publication in the Canada Gazette, Part II. The implementation date of the regulations will be aligned with that of the U.S.
