  The commissioning of the Advanced Rare Isotope & Electron Linac (ARIEL) facility at TRIUMF is underway. The 30 MeV e-linac has successfully been commissioned to 100 W, and to further increase the power to 1 kW the beam loss monitor system (BLM) for fast Machine Protection must be fully operational. There are currently two types of BLMs employed in the e-linac; long-ionization chambers (LIC) and scintillators, consisting of a small BGO coupled to a PMT. A front-end beam loss monitor board was designed at TRIUMF to meet the strict requirements of the BLMs: a trip of the beam occurs on 100 nC in 100 ms of integrated beam loss, and the trip must occur in < 10 us. This contribution will report on the status of the 1 kW BLM system commissioning and will give an outlook as the power is increased to the full 300 kW.
