Canadian Vehicle Survey

Road vehicles dominate passenger travel and freight traffic. However, prior to the Canadian Vehicle Survey, no measures of total vehicle-kilometres or passenger-kilometres were available. The Canadian Vehicle Survey was developed at the request of Transport Canada to fill this data gap. The survey provides quarterly and annual estimates of the amount of road travel, broken down by types of vehicles and characteristics, such as age and sex of driver, time of day and season. The results are the prime source of road vehicle use information for researchers and interested members of the public.
