Proposed Regulations

Regulations Amending the Heavy-duty Vehicle and Engine Greenhouse Gas Emission Regulations and Other Regulations Made Under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999

The proposed Regulations Amending the Heavy-duty Vehicle and Engine Greenhouse Gas Emission Regulations and Other Regulations Made Under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (the proposed Amendments) would introduce more stringent GHG emission standards that begin with the 2021 model year for on-road heavy-duty vehicles and engines. Further, the proposed Amendments introduce new GHG emission standards that would apply to trailers hauled by on-road transport tractors for which the manufacture is completed on or after January 1, 2018, starting with model year 2018 trailers. These emission standards for heavy-duty vehicles, engines and trailers would increase in stringency every three model years to the 2027 model year and maintain full stringency thereafter. The proposed Amendments would also amend two other regulations made under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 to ensure consistency with existing on-road vehicle and engine emission regulations and maintain alignment with U.S. regulatory provisions.
