Fertilizer Canada Renews Hours of Service Exemption Permit

The exemption can be used by any federally-regulated carriers of liquid fertilizers operating within/between Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba during the spring and fall fertilizer seasons.

Fertilizer Canada works with Transport Canada and each of the Provinces to facilitate reporting by all carriers operating under the exemption. After the previous exemption expired in December 2021, Fertilizer Canada applied for and has been granted a renewal of the exemption under the same terms.

The renewed exemption comes into effect on April 1, 2022, and remains valid until December 1, 2026. The exemption is available through Transport Canada’s website: Exemption to allow an alternative to operating under the duty cycles established under the Commercial Vehicle Drivers Hours of Service Regulations
