TAC Committee Excellence Award

Integrating Health and Transportation in Canada Project Steering Committee

TAC’s Integrating Health and Transportation in Canada publication shows how public health can be either enhanced or diminished by transportation system policies, plans, analyses, design, operation and funding. Development of this publication was steered by a collaborative group of agencies that assigned multi-disciplinary staff from transportation and health departments – a unique occurrence. This step invited broad knowledge and perspectives, and demonstrated the agencies’ open-minded willingness to work together and achieve a result that is helpful to both sectors. The members of the Project Steering Committee worked hard to deliver a successful project – and the landmark project report is something to be very proud of.
