Provincial & Territorial Cycling Laws / Municipal Cycling Bylaws
Although there are federal laws regarding motor vehicle equipment, there are no federal laws outlining the rules of the road in Canada.
Instead, each province and territory has its own set of traffic laws.
In addition to this, cities and towns may have their own traffic regulations, known as bylaws. These local regulations may not take away any rights listed in the provincial traffic laws, unless this option is expressly permitted by the province. Also, they may not permit a person riding a bike to do anything prohibited by provincial law.
There are often regulations in other jurisdictions, including university and college campuses, and military bases.
See below for provincial and territorial laws for cyclists, as well as local regulations, that apply to riding your bike in Canada.
