CTA Call to Action: Help Provide Guidance to the Trucking Supply Chain

The Canadian Trucking Alliance and its provincial association partners have been working with the federal government to bring awareness and solutions to the supply chain. In 2022, a joint statement with the Canadian Trucking Alliance and three cabinet ministers declared publicly they would work with CTA and the trucking industry to tackle labour shortages and supply chain constraints.

This commitment led to CTA and the provincial associations working with the federal government to secure $46 million in training dollars for the industry. Multiple CTA recommendations were also reflected in the Government of Canada‚Äôs Supply Chain Task Force Report.

There is, however, much more work to be done. The Government of Canada and Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat (TBCS) have now launched a consultation to examine the regulatory system and supply chain, with a view to better support the movement of commodities and goods in Canada and across the border.

The Canadian Trucking Alliance (CTA) will be making a submission to TBCS by the February 5 deadline, with the CTA Board approving this CTA submission at an upcoming Board meeting.

CTA is encouraging members to be a part of this process by submitting your responses to questions posed in the consultation through the survey link below. The topics include questions on border operations, transportation (efficient goods movement), and other emerging areas.

Your answers will be reviewed by staff for inclusion in the final draft report, which will be approved by the CTA Board. Please submit your comments by January 26.
