motor vehicle

for purposes of applying the Workers Compensation Act and the Occupational Health and Safety Regulation in relation to motor vehicle incidents, motor vehicle should be understood as any motorized vehicle that moves on wheels, is operated for work purposes primarily on roads or highways, and is used for transportation of goods or people. In addition to the cars, trucks, vans, pick-ups and other vehicles one would commonly think of, motor vehicle includes motorcycles, mopeds and motor homes, but does not include bicycles, mobility scooters and all-terrain vehicles.

In other Acts and Regulations, the definition of motor vehicle may differ from the one above. For example, in the Motor Vehicle Act, motor vehicle means a vehicle not run on rails, that is designed to be self-propelled or propelled by electric power obtained from overhead trolley wires.
