Owning an electric bike in Canada is easy. These vehicles are also known as electrically assisted bicycles, electric scooters, electric bicycles and electric scooters, and the laws for them are very similar to those of a traditional bicycle. They don't require a license, license plate, or insurance to own or operate. In Canada, electric assisted bicycles are classified under federal law and each province may make minor changes, such as age requirements, and each municipality may make changes as to where they are allowed to be used.
Most electric bicycles in Quebec are hybrid bicycles with electric assistance and road bikes with electric assistance. While electric bikes (or “electric bikes”) and scooters allow you to move without pedaling, there are a number of things that differentiate them. However, keep in mind that, like all bike lanes in Quebec, riding an electric scooter is illegal. A moped or scooter that can go faster no longer meets the official definition of a moped or scooter.
A 2- or 3-wheeled passenger vehicle equipped with an electric motor or a gasoline engine with a displacement of not more than 50 cc and an automatic transmission. It is prohibited to modify a moped or scooter to increase its power or maximum speed, since the vehicle would no longer meet the definition of a moped or scooter. Whether it's your first time owning an e-bike or you're improving your performance with a QuietKat, there are some e-bike rules in Canada that you should know before you hit the road or off the road.
