Haulage rates have been established by the Department of Transportation and Infrastructure for the haulage of specified Soil, Rock and Aggregate materials, as well as Asphalt Concrete. These rates are paid to truckers for performing services on behalf of the province.

A comprehensive review of rates is performed by the department annually.

The following table provides links to current year and prior year Haulage Rates, average increases/decreases applied and the effective date of each Rate Schedule.
