Most jurisdictions only allow red signal , tail , and brake lights on the rear of a vehicle.

It looks like those would need a turn signal wire separate from the brake wire. I'm not sure how you would do that with the standard RV 4-pin or 7-pin connectors, as those have the brake and turn signal in the same wire.

I don't know anything about Canadian DOT laws, but there are plenty of motor vehicles that have rear amber turn signals.

In Manitoba a vehicle will be rejected upon inspection if the rear turn signal lamps are - quote - " not clearly visible, not red, not the proper filament(s) lit."

Close, but, rear turn signals can be red or amber in Manitoba.

The rules covering the colour of lights and placement or them are actually the same across Canada.

"Lights and reflectors meeting the U.S. SAE/DOT regulations, the European ECE regulations, or the Japanese JIS/JASIC regulations are allowed" Meaning most US, European and Japanese tail lights on cars and trailer are legal here in Canada. We do have some differences in requirements when it comes to side markers though.

White is restricted in Canada on the rear of the vehicle to only back ups or licence plates though.

The question remains - how would this be wired to have the brake lights separate from the turn signals because the brake lights can not be amber.
The tow vehicle would have to be re-wired if it does not have a seperate system and not enough wires in the trailer.

I think a 2 wire to 3 wire converter will solve that problem, like the Curt 56196. Another issue with the OP's lights is they also have a backup light built in, so it may be the case of, if the light is there it has to work

I didn't know something like that even existed - good to know.

Just my opinion, but I think those lights would look out of place on a Boler.
