Ontario Raising Highway Speed Limits

The government is raising the speed limit permanently from 100km/h to 110km/h on six sections of provincial highways in southern Ontario. The change follows several speed limit pilots and consultations and will align posted speeds with other jurisdictions across Canada.

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:

  • Queen Elizabeth Way (QEW) from Hamilton to St. Catharines (32 km)
  • Highway 402 from London to Sarnia (90 km)
  • Highway 417 from Ottawa to the Ontario/Quebec Border (102 km)
  • Highway 401 from Windsor to Tilbury (approx. 40 km)
  • Highway 404 from Newmarket to Woodbine (approx. 16 km)
  • Highway 417 from Kanata to Arnprior (approx. 37 km)

In addition to raising the speed limit permanently on sections of highways in southern Ontario, at the same time, the province is also raising the speed limit to 110km/h on a trial basis on the following sections of provincial highways in Northern Ontario:

  • Highway 400 from MacTier to Nobel (approx. 55 km)
  • Highway 11 from Emsdale to South River (approx. 45km)
