Transport Canada building commercial vehicle test lab – Truck News

Transport Canada has announced plans to build a new $29-milllion commercial vehicle laboratory at its Motor Vehicle Test Centre.

The facility, available for Transport Canada and private sector testing, will be 4,400 square meters (43,000 sq.-ft.), in addition to the 11,300 square meters (122,000 sq.-ft.) of existing lab space.

“These investments at the Motor Vehicle Test Centre will transform it into a state-of-the-art facility, among the most advanced in the world,” said federal Transport Minister, Pablo Rodriguez. “The Motor Vehicle Test Centre is a key part of the local automotive industry and will continue to drive innovation and safety for Canadians on our roads.”

Construction is set to finish by the fall of 2025.
