The Ontario government is scrapping licence plate renewal fees and corresponding stickers for passenger vehicles, light duty trucks, motorcycles and mopeds effective March 13.
The measure will save many Ontario drivers about $120 a year.
Ontario Premier Doug Ford said the government will issue refunds to Ontarians who have renewed their licence plate stickers. More than 7.5 million residents will receive a refund, officials said.
To receive a refund, drivers will have to ensure their address is up to date on the provincial website and that they’ve paid any outstanding traffic tickets by March 7.
Vehicle owners can expect to receive a cheque in the mail starting at the end of March and throughout the month of April, the government says.
