The Transportation Association of Canada has about 500 corporate members who share a common interest in road infrastructure and/or urban transportation, including federal, provincial, and territorial departments of transportation, municipalities, private sector firms, academic institutions and associations.
Memberships are for the calendar year, however are prorated on a quarterly basis for the first three quarters and for a full year plus one quarter for the last quarter for new members. Renewing members pay a full year's fee.
Each corporate member organization names one official TAC member representative to vote at our annual meeting. All employees of the member organization have access to TAC's benefits and member services, and can volunteer to participate in TAC activities and standing committees, space permitting. TAC also offers an individual membership category open to those who are full-time students or retirees.
We encourage you and other transportation professionals at your organization to become actively involved in the Association, starting with membership!
