CAVR thresholds to increase to 26,000 pounds

OTTAWA (Feb. 25) ­ The weight threshold for prorating vehicles under the Canadian Agreement on Vehicle Registration will rise to 26,000 pounds (11,797 kilograms) starting in June, a move designed to ease the transition by provinces to the International Registration Plan.

IRP is a prorate plan that has been adopted by all state governments, British Columbia, Alberta, and Saskatchewan; other jurisdictions have declared their intent to join.

IRP applies to vehicles with a gross weight of 26,000 pounds or greater. The decision, which has been sanctioned by all jurisdictions except B.C., aligns CAVR threshold with that of IRP, and means that vehicles below 26,000 pounds will be given full and free reciprocity when traveling among Canadian jurisdictions.
