Canadian Standards Association (CSA):

Ontario prescribes by regulation that all new school buses offered for sale or sold in Ontario must conform to the CSA standard for school buses: Canadian Standards Association Standard D250 M 1985.

The Ontario Ministry of Transportation recently participated in the review and updating of this standard and will be incorporating the changes when the standard is published.
The federal government has responsibility for establishing new vehicle standards, and the provinces are responsible for in-use standards. The Canadian Standards Association D250 standard is adopted by Transport Canada in Regulations under the Motor Vehicle Safety Act as the standard which must be met.
