Sidewall Markings & Laws

Winter tire markings & winter laws in Canada


During the winter months ahead, we can expect to face icy temperatures and slippery road surfaces. Drivers need to make sure their tires are up to the mark, especially in Quebec where winter tires are a legal requirement for driving on black ice, hard-packed snow and slush or in icy and frosty conditions. Of course, we cannot plan the weather, so it makes sense to be prepared by changing to winter tires from October to Easter or when the temperature falls below 7 ºC.
