2019 Regulatory Developments in Canadian Transportation

Transportation regulations are used to obtain numerous policy goals. In general, these policies can be directed towards various negative externalities, like pollution, designed to create safer and more secure services, used to alter business behaviour and competition, and to ensure consumer protection and accessibility. Each year, accidents, events and pressures from interest groups result in modifications and changes to existing Acts. Often such changes are years in the making involving periodic statutory reviews. Other changes may develop quickly in response to a new technology that suddenly appears in use, and possibly abuse. This paper reviews the regulatory and policy developments in Canadian transportation during 2019. Major regulatory changes are examined for each transportation subsector (air, rail, water and road) together with a brief analysis. The conclusion considers the emerging policy themes for the coming decade.
