Tell Us About Your Research

Linking Canada to the world. The TAC Library gathers information on surface transportation research by Canadian agencies and businesses, and submits it to the global TRID database of transportation research activity. This allows others around the globe to learn about Canadian research, improve their projects, and strengthen networks. We encourage researchers to take a few minutes and tell us about their work, so we can send the information to TRID.
