Within minutes of crossing the United States border into Canada, or whenever your driver's vehicle is operating in Canada, the Samsara Driver app will automatically apply your pre-selected Canadian Hours of Service ruleset for your driver.
Configuring your Canadian Hours of Service Ruleset
To enable the Canadian ruleset, follow these steps:
- Go to Settings > Compliance
- Toggle on the Enable Canada HOS option
By default, your Canadian Hours of Service ruleset will be designated as Canada South Cycle 1. To change to the Cycle 2 ruleset instead, choose Settings > HOS/DVIR > Canada South Driver Ruleset > Edit.
Reviewing Violations in Your Dashboard
Hours of Service Violations for a driver's ruleset are automatically calculated according to the ruleset for the country in which they are currently located.
These violations can be reviewed and managed in the Samsara Dashboard from a driver's log in Reports > Driver HOS or fleet-wide in Reports > HOS Violations.
Canadian Hours of Service Display in the Driver App
To maintain consistency for cross-border drivers, the Driver App uses a three-clock configuration, including the break dial used in the U.S. four clock configuration.
Canadian rulesets do not make use of the break dial, however, violations of the required daily off-duty time are calculated.
