IMPORTANT – PLEASE READ THE NOTE BELOW

If you are reading this page it is a safe bet that you are interested in the hot rod and/or kit car hobby in Canada.

.

In July of 2016, The Ontario Govt enacted new Provincial Dept. of Transport  Regulations that effectively eliminate any possibility of licensing a new build kit car or other home built vehicle within the province of Ontario. See below for details.

.

This new regulation, as written,  makes it impossible to license any vehicle that was not manufactured by a licensed manufacturer along the lines of Ford, Chev, Chrysler etc, etc. etc. This is so because the Ontario  Passenger / Light-Duty Vehicle Inspection Standard  Manual  states as follows

 .

Electronic Stability Control (ESC) required on all vehicles manufactured after August 2011″   (sect.3, para.13, pg.41)

.

You can view the Full Document HERENote that while the document has a date of 2015, it is in fact the currently in force document as evidenced by the link on THIS PAGE  as linked to in this sentence on the home Page “The inspection standards required for vehicles that need safety standards certificates are changing on July 1, 2016. Learn more about the new inspection standards.(See Section 3 Brakes Last Bullet point)

..

.

Think ABS brakes, Collision avoidance systems, Anti upset technology etc. In as much as no hobby builder has the skills, funds or equipment to match what the licensed manufacturers are  required to implement in their cars the regulation, as written, effectively eliminates the hobby builder of a kit car, specialty car or hot rod in Ontario by making it impossible for a home builder to register their vehicle.

.

There are a group of people working  with the MTO on developing a solution to this problem and it is worth noting that it is our belief that this situation is an unintended consequence that the MTO did not forsee when the regulation was put together. 

.

Whilst this is, at the moment, only affecting the guys and gals in Ontario if left unchecked it is only a matter of time before this insanity spreads across the country.

.

With that all said I most urgently request that you  sign up with the SEMA Action Network on their sign up page HERE. In addition please, if you have even a remote interest in seeing our hobby saved, spread the word and get all of your friends and contacts to sign up and spread the word.

.

If we can get a minimum of 6000 signed up members nation wide (more is better) it will provide SEMA with a large enough voice to begin lobbying the Govt for sensible legislation to replace the current hobby killing act. I would also request that you stress the importance of spreading the word. As the old adage goes  – if you tell two friends and they tell two friends and they tell two friends……… pretty soon we have a force to be reckoned with.
