Transportation Association of Canada (TAC) Permit

A TAC permit is required for tridem axles or loads exceeding a GVW of 53,500 kg.  This permit allows tridem axles and/or vehicle configurations with a GVW greater than 53,500 kg to operate on local roads at the same legal maximum weights as on Provincial Highways as per Alberta Regulation 315/2002.  A tridem axle is restricted to 17,000 kg on any municipal roadway unless a TAC Permit is acquired.

The TAC permit can be obtained through RoaData Services.

For more information on over weight and oversize vehicle permits call Roadata Services at 1-888-830-7623.

WATER ACT: Temporary Water Diversions

Did you know?

Diverting surface water on private land requires approval from Alberta Environment and Parks.

Unauthorized drainage on private land has caused significant water issues for property owners and for County infrastructure. We encourage all landowners to refrain from ‘landscaping’ agriculture quarter sections without first reeving provincial approval.
