NOTICE: Opportunity to apply for appointment by the Governor in Council to a roster from which Temporary Members of the Canadian Transportation Agency are selected
Opportunity number: J0320-0611
There is currently an opportunity to apply for appointment by the Governor in Council (GIC) to a roster from which Temporary Members of the Canadian Transportation Agency are selected."
Headquartered in the National Capital Region, Canada, the Canadian Transportation Agency administers and applies certain federal transportation legislation as an independent, quasi-judicial decision-maker and regulator on air, federal rail and marine, and, in the case of accessibility, extra-provincial bus matters.
As independent decision-makers, Members of the Canadian Transportation Agency are assigned to Panels by the Chairperson to make decisions, orders and determinations related to disputes and regulatory applications. Although most formal dispute adjudications and regulatory determinations are processed through written hearings, oral hearings may be held. Members of the Agency may also be appointed to act as arbitrators or mediators in a wide variety of transportation-related disputes.
With the coming-into-effect in July and December 2019 of the Air Passenger Protection Regulations and the coming-into-force in June 2020 of the Accessible Transportation for Persons with Disabilities Regulations, the Canadian Transportation Agency is seeking highly qualified individuals with expertise in the fields of air travel and accessibility. Successful candidates may be appointed to a roster established by the Governor in Council, from which the Minister of Transport appoints Temporary Members of the Canadian Transportation Agency, based on requests from the Agency's Chairperson. Temporary Members are paid on a per diem basis for their work on files assigned to them by the Chairperson.
