ITS Architecture for Canada
Canada's ITS Plan incorporates the development of a national ITS architecture to ensure that products and services are seamlessly integrated. The system architecture provides a unified framework for integration to guide the co-ordinated deployment of ITS programs within the public and private sectors. It offers a starting point from which stakeholders can work together to achieve compatibility among ITS elements to ensure unified ITS deployment for a given region.
The architecture describes interaction among physical components of the transportation system including travelers, vehicles, roadside devices, and control centres. It also describes the information and communications system requirements, how data should be shared and used, and the standards required to facilitate information sharing for ITS deployment. Overall, the system architecture defines the functionality of ITS components and the information flows among ITS elements to achieve total system goals.

The Ontario-Québec Smart Corridor Concept of Operations and Regional ITS Architecture
A Smart Corridor is a corridor in which multiple transportation networks are operationally coordinated, including intermodal connections and collaboration among organizations that participate in the operation of the corridor. Technology is a key enabler through which coordination is achieved.
The Ontario-Québec Smart Corridor Concept of Operations defines the operation of transportation technology solutions required to foster sustainable, secure, and efficient multi-modal goods movement for the corridor extending from Windsor to Quebec City and south to the Canada/U.S. border. The Concept of Operations is based upon a common vision of co-ordinated operations and information flows, stakeholder needs and responsibilities, and current and future supporting system applications. The resulting framework serves to guide future investments in underlying technology applications.
