|Roads where the speed limit is over 50 km/h||50 km/h|
|Roads where the speed limit is 50 km/h or less||20 km/h|
|Any public park or exhibition grounds||20 km/h|

- a valid driver’s licence, motorized snow vehicle operator’s licence (MSVOL) or a snowmobile driver’s licence from your home province, state or country
- proof of insurance
- snowmobile registration permit
