I. What you need to tow a trailer in Ontario
Lights

Your trailer must have:

  • White licence plate light
  • Red tail light
  • Two red reflectors at the rear of the trailer, as far apart as possible

Your trailer must have mudguards, fenders and flaps, or be designed in such a way that it does not spray or splash traffic travelling behind you. You must always ensure that you have a clear view to the rear in your mirrors. The trailer must not obstruct this view.
