Procedures and Principles With Respect to Oral Hearings

Part 1: Background and Purpose

Background

Most dispute adjudication cases before the Agency will proceed by way of written pleadings. Where this is the case, parties do not appear in person before the Agency, but instead submit their evidence and arguments in writing.

In some cases, however, the Agency may decide to hear the whole or part of a case by way of oral hearing.

Some reasons for deciding to proceed by way of oral hearing may include the following:

Backgrounder - Transfer and Discontinuance of Railway Lines -

Canada Transportation Act Part III, Division V

The Canada Transportation Act (Act) provides a framework for railway companies under federal jurisdiction to transfer or discontinue railway lines provided certain procedures are followed.

The Act also sets out a process that must be followed by federal railway companies before certain urban railway sidings and spurs located in a metropolitan area or within the territory served by any urban transit authority ("siding or spur in metropolitan area") can be dismantled.

Normes d'accessibilité des transports

Quel rôle joue l'Office dans l'accessibilité des transports

L'Office doit veiller à ce que tous les voyageurs bénéficient d'un accès égal aux services de transport. 

L'Office veille à éliminer tout obstacle abusif aux possibilités de déplacement des personnes ayant une déficience des services de transport et des installations qui relèvent de sa compétence, ce qui comprend les gares de voyageurs ainsi que les avions, les trains, les traversiers pour passagers et les autocars qui traversent des frontières provinciales ou la frontière canadienne.

How the Agency makes transportation accessible

It's the Agency's responsibility to ensure that everyone enjoys the same access to travel. 

The Agency ensures that any undue obstacles to the mobility of persons with disabilities are removed from transportation services and facilities under its jurisdiction. This includes passenger terminals and airplanes, trains, and passenger ferries and buses that cross a provincial or Canadian border.

The Agency removes undue obstacles in three ways:
