National transportation system
The Canadian Transportation Agency keeps the national transportation system running efficiently and smoothly in the interests of all Canadians – those who work and invest in it, the producers, shippers, travellers and businesses who rely on it, and the communities where it operates – and the prosperity and social fabric of the country as a whole.
Broadly speaking, to implement this mandate, we:
- oversee market entry and exit by making and administering regulations to ensure that industry parties compete on an equal footings and that the interests of Canadians are protected;
- help resolve disputes by using a range of approaches from relatively informal facilitation and mediation to more formal arbitration and adjudication.
