ATV By-Law

The City of Greater Sudbury All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) By-law 2015-158 permits and regulates the operation of ATVs on designated municipal roadways.

ATV By-law 2015-158 came into effect on August 11, 2015, to reflect new changes to Ministry of Transportation regulations. Under the new municipal by-law, the operation of multiple-passenger ATVs, including two-ups, recreational Off-Road Vehicles (ORVs) and Utility Task Vehicles (UTVs), was added to the description of permitted ATVs.

All ATVs, ORVs and UTVs must meet requirements as outlined under the provincial legislation. Residents should ensure that their ATVs, ORVs or UTVs meet these specifications before their operation on any municipal or provincial roadway.
