Manitoba’s Department of Infrastructure needs to do more to ensure operators of heavy commercial vehicles in Manitoba are operating safely.

We examined the adequacy of the Department of Infrastructure’s oversight of commercial vehicle safety. This included examining processes related to its:

  • Motor-carrier safety-fitness program.
  • On-road commercial-vehicle inspections.
  • Strategic planning and performance management.

We concluded that the Department’s oversight of commercial vehicle safety is inadequate. The Department’s safety-fitness-program practices are insufficient to verify and promote safety; there are gaps in its management of on-road inspections; and it has weak planning and performance measurement processes. Our report includes 17 recommendations.
