How to: Switch Regions (CAN)

MileIQ makes it easy for you to switch regions within Canada. By default, your drives will be calculated by the rate that is applicable to the current region set on your device. If you would like to change regions, simply log into your dashboard (same email and password as the app) at the MileIQ web dashboard.

Once logged in to the dashboard, click on the Settings button next to your username to go to the Settings page. There you can set your region to Northern Canada or the rest of Canada.

From the Rates & Units section of the Settings page, you can switch regions by using the ‘Resident of Northern Canada’ toggle. By default, your region in MileIQ is set to the region your device is currently set on.

If you are not already set to Northern Canada (Northwest Territories, Yukon, and Nunavut) and would like to switch, or vice versa, simple click the toggle. If the toggle is green, your region is set to Northern Canada and MileIQ will automatically adjust your rate for previous and future drives to the Northern Canada rate*.

*The 2018 CRA rates for Canada is 55 cent per kilometre for the first 5,000 kilometres driven in a tax year, then 49 cent for each subsequent mile. For Northern Canada (Northwest Territories, Yukon, and Nunavut) there is an additional 4 cent per kilometre allowed for travel.
