Tesla will start rolling out FSD beta in Canada in February. The feature will be rolled out cautiously, Elon Musk said.
Tesla FSD Beta is a highly anticipated feature among owners around the world. In the U.S., it began to be tested at the end of 2020, with a limited number of owners. Over the next six months, FSD Beta was rolled out to about 2,000 testers. After the feature overcame key issues and became safer, Tesla began rolling it out widely in the U.S. to drivers on request. It should be kept in mind that FSD Beta is available only to those drivers who have the highest driving safety ratings (based on Safety Score Beta) since, despite its cability, it needs the driver's close attention and ability to intervene at any moment.
Now it has become known that in addition to the U.S., FSD Beta will soon be available for Canada Tesla owners. According to information from Tesla CEO Elon Musk, the feature will be rolled out in 2-4 weeks—i.e., sometime in February. He clarified that the process will proceed very cautiously, apparently due to the fact that the roads, signs, and traffic rules have some differences from those in the U.S., and the company still has a lot of things to improve for FSD Beta in Canada.

It was first reported that Tesla began testing FSD Beta in Canada in September 2021, when one of the owners posted a series of six videos on YouTube. In the video, FSD Beta went through a series of different tests on the roads of Ontario. The fact that the owner was able to release the video indicated that Tesla had given permission for it and was preparing for a wider market release.
