Commercial Transportation

Transportation plays a key role in moving goods and people across Alberta. Through monitoring and enforcing safety standards, Alberta Transportation aims to keep the province's highways safe for all road users.

The information in this section deals with all aspects of operating standards, inspections, and national codes for commercial vehicles, transportation of dangerous goods, road restrictions and bans as well as rail safety.

Alberta's new Commercial Vehicle Safety Regulation will come into effect on July 1, 2009, as will changes to the Vehicle Equipment Regulation. The changes are necessary to ensure Alberta regulations are consistent with current Canadian and North American standards. The new and amended rules are the result of an extensive consultation with commercial vehicle stakeholders including industry, municipal, and safety organizations.
