The Ontario government today announced it will raise the speed limit permanently from 100 km/h to 110 km/h on six sections of provincial highways.

This comes after more than two years of consultations and pilot tests on some of Ontario’s highways.

Beginning April 22, 2022, the speed limit will be raised permanently to 110 km/h on the following sections of provincial highways in southern Ontario:

What’s more, the province is also raising the speed limit to 110 km/h on a trial basis on the following sections of provincial highways in Northern Ontario:

“With road safety top of mind, these sections have been carefully selected based on their ability to accommodate higher speed limits,” said Caroline Mulroney, Minister of Transportation.

Ontario is following the example of several other Canadian provinces that have speed limits higher than 100 km/h on certain highways. The list includes Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.

In British Columbia, drivers can even hit 120 km/h legally on Coquihalla Highway.
