WHO ARE WE?

Established in 1977, the Private Motor Truck Council of Canada (PMTC) is the only Canadian association dedicated to the interests of private fleet operators. The PMTC provides forums for fleet operators and industry stakeholders to exchange views and resolve issues together, and is at the forefront in representing your views to government, protecting your rights, and promoting your interests.

The PMTC is recognized as the voice of private trucking in Canada. We regularly field calls from trade press seeking PMTC opinions on subjects of interest to the trucking industry. PMTC President Mike Millian also has a monthly column in a leading industry magazine to promote the views of private carriers.

The PMTC provides tangible value in return for our modest membership fees. Members include fleet operators, equipment leasors, driver lessors and all types of suppliers to the private fleet community.

Many describe the PMTC as the best membership value in the Canadian transportation community.

    E-Bulletin January 23/2023   Today the Province of Quebec has published it's ELD regulations, that will make ELD's required for Provincially Regulated Carriers as of April 30th of this year. While the PMTC is in full support of ELD's and are in favour of full enforcement for federally regulated carriers, as plenty of notice was provided to comply, an announcement by Quebec with a timeline of slightly over 3 months to comply for Provincially regulated carriers is concerning to our Quebec members who are Provincially regulated only. Our office will be reaching out to express our concern and encourage a slightly longer runway for Industry. Please see below for the link to the full announcement.    

  • Electronic Logging Device Update as Enforcement date of January 1st, 2023, approaches

    November 7, 2022 (updated January 3, 2023)   Electronic Logging Device Update as Enforcement date of January 1st, 2023, approaches The PMTC attended the fall Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators (CCMTA) Compliance & Regulatory Affairs Committee (CRA) meetings in Ottawa on November 3rd. This was the CCMTA's first return to in-person meetings since November of 2019 as a result of Covid. These meetings are invaluable and are important to attend for anyone who has a stake in safety, compliance and regulatory harmonization across this country. These meetings gather key transportation regulatory officials from each province and Territory as well as the federal government and allows industry stakeholders to hear firsthand what is new and what is coming down the road for rules and regulations, and even more important, allows stakeholders to provide their views and engage in open dialogue with regulators. One of the key items discussed this year was an update on the ELD regulation and where each jurisdiction and the feds stand in readiness to enforce the regulation by the stated enforcement date of January 1st of 2023. Since I have received many calls and emails over the last couple weeks wondering about the status, I am going to take this opportunity to provide you with the latest updates, that were provided at the CRA meetings last week.
