As of July 1 2019 Ontario drivers of personal use pickup trucks with GVWR under 6500kgs are now exempt from the requirement to get the Annual Safety Inspection Yellow stickers.
Please note that at the bottom this proposal has been "approved"

For once I can say GOOD JOB to the Ontario government!

I will be printing this out and carrying it with me to educate any LEO as to the changes if stopped.
Ontario Safety Inspection Certificate Exemption

Do you use your pickup truck for commercial use?
I'm afraid I don't understand this thread or have ever heard of the yellow sticker requirement.
I owned an F-150 for 5 years and never had it inspected until I sold it. I certified it prior to sale.

Can you explain this in layman's terms?
btw, the upper limit, according to the linked article, is 6500 KGS (kilograms), not LBS (pounds). That's 14,300 LBS, I believe.
This is Canada, and we're metric now (not that I like metric, but that was PE Trudeau's fault).

This only applies to Ontario and without getting into the craziness of Ontario reg's it applies to pickup trucks over 4500kg GVWR which your F150 would not reach and commercial vehicles. Regardless of what some people tried to suggest over the years all duallies and any commercial use vehicle of any weight needs the Yellow sticker until this exemption for personal use of dually pickup's

No we own our F350 dually only for towing our personal use recreational trailer. And yes I'm old enough that I grew up without metric and please forgive me when I forget the old man's Metrification

OT, is Canada really metric? Come back from the great country 2 days ago.
My Canadian friend drives the car in km, but boat in miles.
He dives in feet, but measure mountain heights in meters.
He goes to buy some cold cuts and they are sold in 100 grams pricing.
I think I still forgot something.

So, it's to do with heavier duty trucks, usually with duallies?
Ok, that makes more sense, that it benefits the people who drive these very large pickups?
In that case, congrats.[emoticon]

Ah yes, the Gimli glider. It landed on an abandoned military airstrip the locals were using as a drag strip. Fortunately everyone got out of the way in time. I have to laugh at metric time. The daughter of an acquaintance came home with a note from school proclaiming they were switching, mother went ballistic. It was hilarious.

I spend 1/2 of my life in real metric system and 1/2 in SAE.
My favorite comparison is asking SAE guys how many inches you have in mile.
Or how many 1/1000 in 1/16 ?
In metric it is easy - 1 km= 1000 m= 10000 mm

The proposed changes are intended to treat personal use pickup trucks and personal use pickup-trailer combinations equally, reducing stakeholder confusion, and minimizing burden and cost for vehicle owners.

I like the idea of thinking about citizens.
Only wish other jurisdictions could learn the same.
