In Quebec, power-assisted bicycles do not have to meet the conditions defined by the Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Regulations but they do have to comply with federal regulations that define Power Assisted Bicycles. The Quebec Highway Safety Code defines a power-assisted bicycle as a bicycle with an electric motor with a maximum power of 500 watts and a top speed of 32 km/h. They must also have a compliance label attached to identify the manufacturer.  Electric assist bikes are permitted on the road in Quebec. Riders have to be at least fourteen years old to ride an electric bicycle and if they’re under eighteen, they must have a moped or scooter license.
