After a (much) longer than expected wait, it looks like Tesla’s Full Self-Driving (FSD) Beta software will finally be coming to Canada very soon.
Responding to Drive Tesla reader Noah Webb (@NoahWebb_) this afternoon, CEO Elon Musk said the self-driving software will start rolling out north of the border “cautiously in 2 to 4 weeks.”
We will start rolling out FSD beta in Canada cautiously in next 2 to 4 weeks

Musk did not elaborate on whether the Canadians will have to use Tesla’s Safety Score, which only allows owners to download the software after achieving a perfect score ‘100’.
You might notice that in his message to Musk, Webb was quoting a tweet from December 2020 in which the CEO said FSD Beta was coming to Canada “very soon,” so this latest timeline should be taken with a grain of salt.
It is however promising that it might actually happen this time. Just two months ago Musk said it might be released in Canada in December, but offered “no guarantees.”
If it does arrive as promised, the price of the FSD suite of features will be increasing by ~$2,000 within one week of the release. It is currently priced at $10,600.
Since his initial promise in 2020, Musk has said the reason for the delays was due to “subtle” and “important” differences between Canadian roads.
We have however seen several US owners that have visited Canada with their FSD Beta-equipped cars and the software works just as well in Canada as it does south of the border.
Do you think Canada will actually get FSD beta within the next month? Let us know in the comments below.
