Transport trucks to small dump trucks with trailers hauling equipment and buses driving on Ontario's roadways create personal safety and environmental safety risks.

The Commercial Vehicle Operator's Registration (CVOR) system and the Carrier Safety Rating (CSR) program were developed by the Ministry of Transportation as part of Ontario's ongoing commitment to road safety.

This includes trucks that have a registered gross weight of over 4,500 kilograms, and buses that can carry ten or more passengers. Owners / operators of these vehicles must apply for, obtain and renew a CVOR certificate.

Every Owner/Operator is responsible for monitoring their CVOR record and the performance information it provides to ensure they hold a below threshold safety rating.
