Consultations

The Canadian Transportation Agency is committed to consulting with Canadians. Through consultations, the Agency gains a greater understanding of different perspectives from the public, stakeholders and experts and therefore develops more informed and effective policies and programs.

For advice on accessibility issues, the Agency also consults its Accessibility Advisory Committee.
