Welcome to Canada
Canada follows most of the editing guidelines that the USA does so most practices can be used without issue.
However there are a few differences that need to be understood before entering the Great White North!
- Freeways have a different method of being set up and entered/exited. Do not change any road types without contacting a local host first.
- Be aware that French is the second language for all of Canada and many people speak it as their first. If you run into a French issue, please do not use Google Translate. Several of our Canadian editors are fluent, please contact them to deal with the issue. There is a channel in Slack for this: ca-ask-canadian
- Although there is a locking standard table, Canada has Traffic Locks (Auto Locks) active. These locks take precedence.
Please review the Canada Wiki page before diving into our icy waters!
Thanks for participating and happy editing!
Our mission are to handle the following (in order of priority):
- Places validation

Canada has active "Traffic Locks", these locks are based on usage from users. They are limited to a max rank of 4, but can be any rank below.
Segments that have restricted turns must be locked to Level 5.
When traffic locks are not enough to effectively protect an area, or after a city has undergone a "Road Classification" change the locks may be manually set to the below standards, depending on the decision of the Canadian Champs.
If the traffic lock is higher than the minimum standards listed below, please don't lower the lock.
|Segment Type||Default locks|

PUR should be reviewed for accuracy, once approved all relevant information pertaining to the place should be entered. Please use each company's website to gather all information you can. Once a place is complete please lock to rank 3. If your own editor rank is 1 or 2, let someone else know via Slack, since you can't lock to rank 3.
This practice will prevent app trusted users and most IGN editors from making incorrect changes to places we know are right. App trusted users and IGN editors are rarely rank 3.
- Use the FC/RC classification of the road leading to the ferry crossing.
- If the ferry has a toll, mark it as a toll road.
