Transportation

The Challenge

Every year, thousands of chemical shipments make their way across Canada by rail and by road to meet the needs of manufacturers, municipalities, and consumers. Ensuring and improving the safe and efficient transportation of chemical products is of paramount importance for all CIAC members.

Improving transportation safety

Many CIAC members go above and beyond what is required for transporting chemicals. This is seen in their commitment and leadership of the TRANSCAER® initiative and TEAP III program.

Advocating for transportation reliability and service

CIAC advocates for a safe, fair, commercially based, market-driven freight rail system through legislation such as The Canada Transportation Act. This work is key in supporting competitiveness, trade interests, jobs, and economic growth and prosperity.
