Ministry of Transportation Proposed Updates to Studded Tire Use in Northern Ontario

The Ministry of Transportation has proposed updates to the current regulation to allow new types of studded tires for use by residents of Northern Ontario.

Studded tire use is permitted from September 1st to May 31st for vehicles with an ownership address in Northern Ontario, as defined by the Algoma, Cochrane, Kenora, Manitoulin, Nipissing, Parry Sound, Rainy River, Sudbury, Thunder Bay and Timiskaming Territorial Districts and to out-of-province vehicles travelling in Ontario for less than a month.

The expected proposed changes will be in effect by the end of the month and the new tires will not impact pavements more than those that are currently allowed.

Inquires should be directed to Becca Lane, Manager, Materials Engineering and Research Office at 416.235-3512.
