In Canada, privately licensed frequencies, not CB are used that have to be
programmed into the scanner. There may or may not be repeaters, but since
you only need to communicate with the traffic nearby it doesn't matter
(there's no point in know that there is a truck moving 20km up the road.
The system does not excuse bad driving, nor does it replace a satellite
phone.

What I assume Warin is talking about is extremely remote tracks with
extremely low traffic, but the roads I'm referring to are logging or winter
roads, which are remote, narrow and have heavy equipment moving down them
at times (but at other times are empty) In my part of Canada such roads are
open to the public and often accommodate different groups of people with
different vehicles (everything from tractor trailers to long distance
runners)

Here is an example of a sign in BC that mercifully gives the frequency:

This one, put up by the same agency has no indication of what frequency and
just assumes you know what you're doing:
