22. A person who leases an off-highway vehicle to a natural person must take reasonable measures to ensure that the operator
(1) is 18 years of age or over;
(2) holds the driver’s licence required under the first paragraph of section 16; and
(3) has received the minimum training enabling the operator to understand the operation of the vehicle and the minimum safety rules to be followed when operating the vehicle.
The same obligations apply to a recreational-tourism enterprise or other enterprise which, as part of a business, temporarily provides a natural person with an off-highway vehicle.
The Government may, by regulation, prescribe exceptions and additional requirements related to training and to the lease or provision of off-highway vehicles, including for the purpose of determining any maximum engine power standards for off-highway vehicles available for lease for a period of less than 30 days.
