Impaired Driving

Canadian federal law prohibits the operation of a motor vehicle while under the influence of intoxicating beverages, with the illegal per se limit set at 0.08 percent blood alcohol content (.08 BAC). Newfoundland and Labrador sets an illegal per se limit of .05 BAC. Violating this law could result in temporary loss of driver’s license.

Newfoundland and Labrador sets the legal drinking age at 19.

It is illegal to fail to submit to testing or an evaluation for impaired driving.

Newfoundland and Labrador does not require the use of ignition interlocks for impaired driving offenders but offenders have the option of using them.
