What we do
The Canadian Transportation Agency is an independent, quasi-judicial tribunal and economic regulator. It makes decisions and recommendations on a wide range of matters involving air, rail and marine transportation that fall under the authority of Parliament, as set out in the Canada Transportation Act and other legislation.
Our mandate includes:
- Economic regulation
- to provide approvals, issue licences, permits and certificates of fitness and make decisions on a wide range of matters involving federal air, rail and marine transportation;
- Dispute resolution
- to resolve complaints about federal transportation services, rates, fees and charges; and
- to ensure Canada's national transportation system is accessible to everyone, particularly those with disabilities.
