There is still hope that Tesla will release Full Self-Driving (FSD) Beta in Canada this month.
On January 16 CEO Elon Musk said the company would begin a cautious rollout in 2-4 weeks, putting a potential release date in early to mid-February.
That was later adjusted to “this month,” with Musk referencing a February release of the software north of the border.
The change led many Canadian Tesla owners to believe it wasn’t going to happen, just like the numerous times before when he promised it was coming “very soon.”
However, in an update today Musk confirmed their schedule is still on track.

Given that we are less than two weeks away from the end of the month, we should start seeing some action soon in the form of the release of Tesla’s Safety Score.
Although Musk hasn’t confirmed it, we expect Tesla to use the tool to help determine which owners will be first to download FSD Beta.
When the tool was released in the US, Tesla calculated the score based on a 7-day average, measuring driving behaviours like Front Collision Warnings, Hard Braking, Aggressive Turning, and more.
Even though this will be the official expansion of FSD Beta in Canada, Tesla has been testing the software with employees for at least one year.
A recent recall notice posted to Transport Canada’s website revealed there are currently 68 employees testing the software across Canada.
