Canadian Speed Limits

Note: The following information is presented only an informational platform. We make no claims to its accuracy.

If you are an American and see a speed limit of “100″ while travelling in Canada, that doesn’t mean you can go 100 miles/hour.  This means 100 kilometres/hour and translates to just a bit more than 60 mph. In general, you can convert from kph to mph by dividing the speed in kph by 1.6.

40 kph = 25 mph
50 kph = 31 mph
60 kph = 37 mph,mv
80 kph = 50 mph
100 kph = 62 mph

110 kilometers per hour is the fastest you can go on a Canadian highway. The province of Ontario is especially strict, with maximum speed of 100 kph.  If you are caught driving 50 kilometers per hour over the posted limit in Ontario your car will be impounded. Below are typical speed limits you will see on Canadian roads.

Common Canadian Roadway Speed Limits
