Winter tires and who is using them
Atlantic Canadian drivers use winter tires more than any other Canadian region except Quebec, where it has been mandatory since 2008.
The Tire and rubber Association of Canada (TRAC) 2017 Canadian Consumer Winter Tire Study, conducted by Leger, shows that 83 per cent of Atlantic Canadian drivers are now using winter tires. The overall Canadian average is about 60 per cent.
TRAC is the national trade association representing tire makers, rubber products manufacturers and importers as well as rubber recyclers and suppliers of goods and services related to the industry.
