OTTAWA, Ont. — An IRP Full Reciprocity Plan (FRP) is once again in discussion in the Canadian Trucking Alliance (CTA) is calling on its provincial associates to lobby for its adoption.
The proposal will reduce administrative burdens and, by extension, the associated costs faced by carriers registered under IRP, the Alliance said in a release. It would also eliminate the need for most carriers to estimate miles travelled in the upcoming year, by granting full registration reciprocity in all jurisdictions.
It would, in that sense, reflect the International Fuel Tax Agreement, the CTA notes. The provincial associations are being urged to bring the issue up with their IRP representatives.
“CTA believes that this ballot, if adopted, will be positive for the trucking industry and we are hopeful that it will receive enough votes to pass this time around,” said David Bradley, president and CEO of the CTA. “We are hopeful the views of the Canadian trucking industry will be given due consideration when the matter comes up for discussion next month.”
The proposal is expected to be voted on at the annual IRP meeting in June.
