Preparing Canada’s Road Transportation System for Connectivity and Automation

Transport Canada

October 19, 2017

Connectivity and automation are creating new possibilities for innovation to enhance the capacity and competitiveness of Canada’s transportation system. Enabled by powerful information technologies, smart infrastructure, and new sources of data, connected and automated vehicles will have far reaching impacts on trade, transportation, and the economy as a whole over the coming decades.

Under the Trade and Transportation Corridors Initiative, $1.725 M over four years will be available for grants and contributions through Transport Canada’s Program to Advance Connectivity and Automation in the Transportation System. Transport Canada will fund research, studies and technology evaluations; the development of codes, standards, and guidance materials; and, professional capacity building that will help Canadian jurisdictions prepare for connected and automated vehicles.

Provinces and territories, municipalities, Indigenous groups, academia, and not-for-profit organizations are all eligible to submit proposals until November 30, 2017. For more information visit: http://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/acats-applicants-guide.html
