Alberta's Helmet Law

Helmets are the first piece of safety equipment we strongly recommend to our users. We applaud the government for introducing these amendments and hope to see the proposed helmet legislation become law in Alberta.

Brent Hodgson

President, Alberta Off-Highway Vehicle Association

Safer ATV riding is a top priority for the AOHVA and our member clubs.

On December 6, 2016, Bill 36 - An Act to Enhance Safety for Off Highway Vehicles - was passed, amending the Traffic Safety Act. The amendments create helmet requirements for Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) riders.

A new law requiring helmets to be worn by users of OHVs when riding on public land will be proclaimed on May 15, 2017. With this act, Alberta joins the rest of the jurisdictions in Canada in having some type of OHV helmet law.

Details of Bill 36 and additional information can be found here…
