UPDATE March 30th: An earlier version of this article indicated that the stretch of Highway 417 between Kanata and Arnprior was also part of the 110 kilometre per hour pilot program that began in 2019. This was not the case, and the article has been edited to reflect this.

You’ll be able to keep going fast on your way to Quebec on Highway 417.

Ontario Transportation Minister Caroline Mulroney announced today that the speed limit is permanently increasing to 110 kilometres per hour along that stretch. 

The speed limit was first increased as part of a pilot program in 2019.

Other portions of 400-series highways in places like Hamilton, Sarnia and Windsor were also part of the program, and their speed limit increases are also being made permanent.

The limit is also increasing to 110 between Kanata and Arnprior on the 417.

“Our government continues to find new ways to make life easier and more convenient for families and businesses that depend on highways to get where they need to go,” Mulroney says. “With road safety top of mind, these sections have been carefully selected based on their ability to accommodate higher speed limits.”

The change takes effect on April 22nd.
