Metro Vancouver Non-Road Diesel Program

Routine visits to Mac Industrial Exhaust Shop adds year's to your vehicle's life.


Mac Industrial Exhaust Shop Inc. is an authorized installer for Metro Vancouver to retrofit the off-road Tier 0 and Tier 1 equipment such as excavators, air compressors, man lifts, skid steer loaders and backhoes operating in the Greater Vancouver Regional District. By installing an (ERM) emission reduction measure on the above, you could reduce or even eliminate your levies paid to Metro operators per year.

The by-law requires owner and operators of the Tier 0 and Tier 1 off-road diesel engines 25hp or greater to register, label and pay registration fees in order to operate their engines in Metro Vancouver.

The required PM reductions are listed below:

  • 25-49 HP – 37% PM Reduction (DPF only)
  • 100-174 HP – 23% PM Reduction
  • 175-299 HP – 26% PM Reduction

Any other HP ranges not listed below require a 20% PM reduction.

Your Options:

Option 1
A DOC (Diesel Oxidation Catalyst) will take your Tier 0 engine to a Tier 1 and lower the cost of your fees to operate. This will give you a 26% PM reduction.

  • For example, a 1984 engine working at a max 92 HP will be levied $1318.24 over a 1-year period. After a DOC is installed, your fees drop to $566.97 per year for a savings of $751.27. This will continue to save you money as fees are increasing yearly.

Option 2
A DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) will take your Tier 0 or Tier 1 engine to a Tier 2. By doing this you will entirely eliminate your levies paid to Metro Vancouver.

Please click the below link to find out how much you are paying in fees and determine what solution is best for you.

Option 3

  • 1. Sell it for use outside Metro Vancouver, or
  • 2. Move it permanently outside Metro Vancouver, or
  • 3. Scrap it.

By “retiring” a registered off-road diesel engine or bringing your engine emissions to a “Tier 2” or greater you can get back up to 80% of operating fees paid to Metro Vancouver over the previous 3 years.
