MONCTON, N.B. – New Brunswick in February held a series of information sessions to help the province’s trucking industry get a handle on the International Registration Plan (IRP).
The province, along with the rest of Atlantic Canada, is working towards replacing the Canadian Agreement on Vehicle Registration (CAVR) with IRP, effective April 1.
Begun in the U.S. in 1973, IRP is a system that distributes fees for commercial vehicles travelling through various states and provinces. CAVR worked similarly, but only in Canada.
British Columbia, Saskatchewan and Alberta are already part of IRP. Quebec and Ontario plan to join at the same time as Atlantic Canada.
The talks were held by Service New Brunswick in partnership with the Department of Public Safety. n
