National Standards for Heavy Vehicle Weights and Dimensions:

In February 1988, the Council of Ministers of Transportation and Highway Safety endorsed a Memorandum of Understanding designed to improve uniformity in regulations governing the weights and dimensions of commercial vehicles operating between provinces and territories. Since 1988, the scope and content of the MOU has been expanded or amended on several occasions. Under the terms of the MOU, each of the provinces and territories will permit vehicles which comply with the appropriate weights and dimensions described in the agreement to travel on a designated system of highways within their jurisdiction.

It should be recognized that each jurisdiction retains the authority to allow more liberal weights and dimensions, or different types of vehicle configurations, within their jurisdiction.
