Workforce Development Council


This Council guides TAC in fulfilling its commitment to supporting the development of a skilled, interdisciplinary workforce for Canada’s transportation sector. More specifically, the Council is a national forum for information exchange and problem solving related to: recruiting and retaining professional and technical staff; building leadership and managing knowledge within TAC member organizations; encouraging post-secondary institutions to develop and enhance transportation-related programs; and encouraging students to learn about and find employment in the transportation sector.

The Council meets in person twice a year, at TAC’s Spring and Fall Technical Meetings. Meetings are open to all employees of TAC member organizations, individual TAC members, and others at the discretion of the Chair. For more information on the Council, see its Terms of Reference or contact Geoff Noxon.
