About TAC Foundation

The Transportation Association of Canada (TAC) Foundation, a registered charity, was established by the Transportation Association of Canada in 2003 to address the issue of shortages in the number of skilled people available for the planning, design, construction, operation and maintenance of Canada’s transportation infrastructure.

The primary thrust of the TAC Foundation has been to significantly expand TAC’s previous support of transportation education, both in terms of annual total dollars available to students in transportation programs and in scope. The expansion in scope is in reference to broadening the reach of the scholarship program beyond university graduate students, as well as to the implementation of other programs to support transportation education in Canada, such as promoting careers in transportation to high school students and assisting transportation educators and researchers. 
 
The TAC Foundation is overseen by a Board of Directors.
