Transport Canada Mandate
Transport Canada is responsible for developing and overseeing the Government of Canada’s transportation policies and programs so that Canadians can have access to a transportation system that is:
- Safe and secure,
- Green and innovative, and
Transport Canada works towards these objectives by:
- Proposing and updating policies, laws and regulations;
- Conducting inspections, enforcement activities and surveillance of the transportation industry’s equipment, operations and facilities; and
- Providing funding to organizations for projects that strengthen the transportation network, including safety improvement projects, technological innovations and green transportation initiatives.
While Transport Canada is not directly responsible for all aspects or modes of transportation, they play a key leadership role in ensuring that all parts of the transportation system across Canada work together effectively. It does so by collaborating with various groups including Indigenous people, industry, provincial and territorial governments and international partners.
