If everything continues to go smoothly with the Full Self-Driving (FSD) beta testing in the US, the first Canadian beta testers could be selected in just a few weeks.
Despite continuous attempts from Canadian Tesla owners over the past month to get Elon Musk’s attention in regards to when the self-driving software will arrive north of the border, it finally took a US beta tester to get a response from the CEO.
John, one of the very first FSD beta testers and president of Tesla Owners Silicon Valley asked Musk when Canadian beta testers would be selected, to which he replied “Hopefully next month”.
Hopefully next month

The December timeline follows what Musk has hinted at previously for when Canada would receive the software.
Earlier this month he said Canada and Norway would be next in line, once the US was out of “early beta”. When that would be was up for debate, but from the outset Musk has been hopeful for a wide release of FSD beta before the end of the year.
Musk has so far given no indication that problems have popped during the first month of testing, so it seemed likely that Canada was going to get the software before the end of the year. In fact it was what we suggested at the beginning of November.
The one downside to this announcement is that the FSD package will be increasing in price soon. When the software was released in the US, Musk said the price would increase one week after it is released in other locations.
