Tesla CEO Elon Musk has provided another update on when Canadians might finally receive the Full Self-Driving (FSD) beta software, and unfortunately it is not any more specific as his previous timeline.
When responding to current FSD beta tester and Canadian James Locke asking if the expansion of the beta program will include Canada, Musk said it should be coming “very soon.” He also explained the reason it hasn’t arrived north of the border is due to differences between Canadian and U.S. roads.
Should be very soon. Many subtle differences between US & Canada roads, so harder than it seems.

While it is good news to get more clarification from Musk, it unfortunately matches his previous estimation from last year. On December 26, he used the same “very soon” wording, along with “subtle” differences but in relation to traffic rules.
There are subtle, important, differences between US & Canada traffic rules, but FSD beta will be extended to Canada very soon

In good news, Canadian Tesla Service Centers are advising owners to email firstname.lastname@example.org to show interest in becoming a FSD beta tester. They likely wouldn’t be doing this if it wasn’t going to be coming to Canada soon.
