Back on Track

Ontario’s Remedial Measures Program for Impaired Drivers

As cited by MADD Canada, crashes involving alcohol and/or drugs are a leading criminal cause of death in Canada.

In 1998, Back on Track, Ontario’s Remedial Measures Program for impaired driving offences was introduced for offences that take place on or after September 30, 1998. The program was designed as an educational program for people who have committed an impaired driving offence in Ontario to help people learn to separate drinking and other drug use from driving.

The Highway Traffic Act requires anyone convicted of a Criminal Code impaired driving offence or who has committed two or more provincial impaired driving offences in the past 10 years to successfully complete the Back on Track program to be eligible to apply for licence reinstatement.

Registration

To register for the program individuals must contact Back on Track at the Centre for Addictions and Mental Health (CAMH). They will be required to complete a registration package and pay fee to cover the costs of the program for convicted impaired drivers or administrative suspensions.
