About Us


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 November 18, 2022 UPDATED INFO TO NOV 7TH ELD BULLETIN   Good afternoon PMTC Members. It seems what Newfoundland reported at the CCMTA meetings in Ottawa on November 3rd was not accurate. See update we received today from Newfoundland with different information for Provincially regulated carriers. We are providing this update to ensure our members and contacts have the most up to date and accurate information.   K. Gail Boland, Assistant Deputy Minister Digital Government and Services Branch has advised as of November 18, 2022 as below:  "We have not yet communicated when provincially regulated carriers (those that travel within the Province only) will be required to install and use ELDs. When this decision is made, sufficient notice will be provided so that all provinical carriers have the time needed to purchase, install and train their drivers on the use of ELDs."

    Dear Manitoba Motor Carrier, Manitoba Transportation and Infrastructure (MTI) regulates the operation of heavy commercial vehicles registered in the Province of Manitoba. The Manitoba Highway Traffic Act (HTA) defines a regulated vehicle as a motor vehicle or trailer that has a registered gross weight of 4,500 kg or more. Section 312.2 of the HTA states that carriers must have a valid safety fitness certificate (SFC) to operate a regulated vehicle in Manitoba. SFCs are renewed annually and a valid SFC is required to register a regulated vehicle in Manitoba. The purpose of this letter is to provide notification of changes to the SFC annual renewal process starting in the fall of 2022.
