The Carrier Profile system was designed to identify higher risk carriers to provincial regulators and to assist carriers in internally monitoring their on-road safety performance.
National Safety Code (NSC) Standard 7 requires all Canadian jurisdictions to maintain a Carrier Profile on each of their NSC carriers. Each of these NSC carriers is also required to hold a Safety Fitness Certificate. In Alberta, this includes carriers that operate:
- commercial vehicles registered for a weight of more than 4,500 kg that operate in multiple provinces, territories or states
- commercial vehicles registered for a weight of 11,794 kg or more that operate solely within Alberta
- commercial passenger vehicles with a seating capacity originally designed for 11 persons or more, including the driver
Carrier Profile System
Alberta Transportation gathers enforcement information from across North America related to carriers authorized to operate commercial vehicles. This information includes:
- convictions against the carrier and its drivers
- Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) inspections
- collision information
- facility audit information
Under Bill 21, the Provincial Administrative Penalties Act, legislative changes were passed in July 2020 to create a new approach to enforcement for handling non-criminal traffic offences by taking them out of the courts. Alberta’s impaired driving laws are changing effective December 1, 2020. A new Roadside Sanction program will keep our roads safer by providing serious and immediate consequences for all impaired drivers. For more information, see:
Effective December 1, 2020, contraventions issued roadside will appear on the carrier profile as information.
Additional profile system changes are under review and development post December 1, 2020.
Alberta's Carrier Profile system is used to consolidate all information collected and can be used by provincial regulators to identify the 5% of carriers who pose the greatest safety risk to other highway users.
