The Italian manufacturer's bid to make its tyres safer in light of a number of failures during the first five races will see the new rubber put through its paces on the Friday of race weekend at Montreal's Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.
Delaminations, where the tread has disintegrated and come away from the belt of the tyre, have occurred to the likes of Lewis Hamilton and Paul Di Resta.
At present a steel belt is used, but Pirelli will replace that with Kevlar, as was employed last season.
Pirelli has confirmed the new tyres, in medium compound only, will be trialled in Friday practice, with the medium and supersoft for the race to remain unaltered as per the current specifications.
With each driver to receive two sets of the new tyre on Friday in Canada, it is hoped that if successful it will then be brought in from the British Grand Prix onwards.
A Pirelli statement read: "The aim of introducing the new tyre is to prevent any instances of the tread detaching itself from the structure.
"However, the performance and wear characteristics of the new tyre will not be significantly different, with the aim of keeping up the spectacle and retaining a strategic element to all the races."
Pirelli is also hoping the new tyre will lead to an average of two pit stops per race, as per its brief when it first arrived in F1 at the start of 2011, as opposed to the four stops per driver in the Spanish GP earlier this month.
