Provincial radar detector laws in Canada

Radar detectors illegal in these Canadian provinces

In this article, we first start off by revisiting the Canadian regions where radar detectors are legal, and the provinces that ban them.

Radar detectors are legal to own and to use in British Columbia, Alberta, and Saskatchewan.

Radar detectors are not allowed by provincial laws / highway acts in Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland, and all northern territories. Police in these provinces use Spectre RDD (radar-detector-detector) to catch radar detector (with leakage signal).

  1. I have a 360 full band scanning radar detector and having purchased it online I was wondering if they are detected in Ontario by police using radar detector detectors?

  2. @Phil it depends on which detector you got. The models listed in this article are the stealth models currently on the market. Many detectors marketed as “VG2 invisible” are generally NOT stealth to the new Spectre Elite RDD.

  3. Have you got a complete stealth system for Ontario which is completely undetectable including laser? I don’t generally speed but I had an awful speeding ticket a few years back. I just like to be aware. I think if radar is being used on me I have a right to know.

  4. Are the ALP radar jammers detectable by police ? While radar detectors are legal in Saskatchewan I’m not certain about jammers.
