C-24.2 - Highway Safety Code

Full text
32.1. Every registration plate number must be made up of Latin alphabet capital letters, Arabic numerals or a combination of both. It must be compatible with the plate numbering system established by the Société and be easy to read.
A registration plate number must not cause confusion with another plate number and, in the case of a personalized number, must not include an expression or a message, including when read in reverse, that
(1)  falsely suggests that the owner of the road vehicle is, or is related to, a public authority;
(2)  conveys a careless attitude with respect to road safety;
(3)  expresses an obscene or scandalous notion;
(4)  promotes the commission of a criminal offence;
(5)  the law reserves for another person or prohibits from being used; or
(6)  is not in conformity with the Charter of the French language (chapter C-11).
In the event of non-compliance with the conditions of this section, the Société may refuse to issue the plate or may invalidate it if the non-compliance is identified after the issuance of the plate.
A government regulation may prescribe rules for the creation of a plate number, in particular to allow the use of special characters; such rules may vary according to the classes of road vehicles.
