That said, there aren’t any certified at the time this article was posted. Please bookmark the List of certified ELDs so that you may check in the future.

Update Regarding The Electronic Log Devices:

Electronic Log Devices are mandatory for those hauling in the US only. From Dec18/17-Apr01/18, there will be a Soft Enforcement Policy on all Commercial Vehicles coming or going into the US. It is Business as usual for all Commercial Vehicles operating in Canada. There still has been no date set for when changes are to come. Once Government sets a date for ELD's to be used in Canada, expect a 2-year window, before any type of enforcement will be put into place.
