2008 Transportation in Canada An Overview 3 Introduction The 2008 Overview report presents a brief overview of the state of transportation in Canada using the most current information available. The Minister of Transport has a statutory responsibility to table in Parliament, each year, a brief overview of the state of transportation in Canada and every five years, an expanded and more comprehensive review. This responsibility derives from Section 52 of the Canada Transportation Act (1996), as amended in June 2007, with Section 52 (1) calling for an Industry Overview in the following terms: “Each year before the end of May, the Minister shall, using the most current information available, prepare and lay before both Houses of Parliament a report providing a brief overview of the state of transportation in Canada.” And Section 52(2) calling for an Industry Review every five years in the following manner: “Every five years, the report referred to in subsection (1) shall be expanded to a comprehensive review of the state of transportation in Canada which shall include (a) the financial performance of each mode of transportation and its contribution to the Canadian economy; (b) the extent to which carriers and modes of transportation were provided resources, facilities and services at public expense; (c) the extent to which carriers and modes of transportation received compensation, indirectly and directly, for the resources, facilities and services that were required to be provided as an imposed public duty; (c.1) the long term outlook and trends in transportation in Canada; and (d) any other transportation matters that the Minister considers appropriate.” This overview report is the second such report submitted by the Minister since the coming into force of the amended Section 52 of the . In producing this overview report, Transport Canada used the most current data and information available. The most current data means the most recent year for which data were available, which was not always 2008. While the scope of the report goes beyond the federal transportation responsibilities, limited attention was paid to urban and intermodal transportation matters.
