Modernizing Traffic and Transportation in Manitoba – Safe roads, less red tape and a fair say for municipalities

On June 4, 2018, the Manitoba government passed Bill 14, The Traffic and Transportation Modernization Act.

The Act, which is expected to take effect in early 2019, replaces various acts and regulations as part of a new regulatory framework. This will help ensure only relevant and safety related regulatory requirements continue.

The Act makes significant changes to how traffic and transportation are regulated in Manitoba.

Changes include:

  • eliminating the Highway Traffic Board and the Motor Transport Board
  • allowing municipalities to set speed limits on municipal roads in their communities

The changes support the Manitoba government’s commitment to reducing red tape, reviewing agencies, boards and commissions, reducing duplication and inefficiencies, and giving municipalities a fair say, while not compromising public safety on Manitoba roads.

New processes, guidelines and forms are being developed to increase transparency of information and improve client service.

More information will be posted on this site as it becomes available.
