Canada Transportation Act Review - Report

On February 25, 2016, the Minister of Transport tabled in Parliament the Canada Transportation Act (CTA) Review Report.

The Review was launched on June 25, 2014, and concluded on December 21, 2015 when it was submitted to the Minister of Transport by the Chair of the Review, the Honourable David Emerson, P.C., O.B.C.

The Review looked forward 20 to 30 years to identify priorities and potential actions in transportation that will support Canada’s long-term economic well-being. The Report embodies many months of analytical work, significant public consultations and includes a number of recommendations.

The Government is currently reviewing the Report and is looking forward to hearing from Canadians on the findings of the Review. Collaboration with key partners will be essential to ensure that Canada’s transportation system is well positioned to capitalize on global opportunities, contribute to a high-performing economy and meet the evolving needs of Canadians.

On April 27, 2016, the Minister of Transport launched an engagement process with Canadians, stakeholders, and provinces and territories over the course of spring and summer 2016, in order to hear views and discuss ideas that will inform the development of a long-term agenda for transportation in Canada. The CTA Review Report provides an important source of key inputs in this regard.
