Figure 1: Transport Canada Program Activity Architecture for 2011-12

This chart visually represents the relationship between Transport Canada's Program Activities, its Strategic Outcomes and the Government of Canada outcome areas. The program activities are depicted in their logical relationship to each other and to the Strategic Outcomes and Government of Canada Outcome Areas to which they contribute.

The chart reads from top to bottom. Color has been used to distinguish each of the four Strategic Outcomes and the Internal Services program activity.

At the top of the chart is a rectangular box that identifies the Government of Canada Outcome areas. The five Outcome areas that relate to the Strategic Outcomes of Transport Canada are identified as follows:

  • Strong economic growth;
  • An innovative and knowledge-based economy;
  • A clean and healthy environment;
  • A fair and secure marketplace; and
  • A safe and secure Canada.

In the middle of the chart is a rectangular box that identifies Transport Canada's four Strategic Outcomes, which are as follows:

  • An Efficient Transportation System;
  • A Clean Transportation System;
  • A Safe Transportation System; and
  • A Secure Transportation System.

The rectangular box at the bottom of the chart identifies Program Activities for each Strategic Outcome. This information is as follows:
