Call for Presenters: TAC Symposium on Equity in Transportation

February 9, 2024

As transportation continues to evolve, addressing equity concerns and improving outcomes has become a top priority for TAC member organizations across Canada.

Online Symposium on Equity in Transportation – May 30, 2024 

To recognize progress and promote information sharing, TAC is planning an online symposium with the support of INTERACT – a group of Canadian scientists, city builders, community partners, and residents who study the design of healthy cities. In 2023, INTERACT released Practices and Inspiration for Sustainable Transportation Equity: Case Studies from Canadian Cities, an important resource for transportation practitioners and organizations.

Presenters Wanted

We are seeking short (5- to 10-minute) virtual presentations to be part of the symposium program, on topics like:

  • Equity considerations in transportation plans, policies, budgets and programs
  • Transportation equity concerns in different contexts (e.g. rural vs. urban, small vs. large cities)
  • Equity lenses, practices and lessons learned in road safety, active transportation, shared micromobility, and public transit
  • Transportation equity opportunities, objectives, indicators and barriers
  • Perspectives and key issues for equity-deserving groups
  • Case studies of transportation projects with meaningful equity elements

We especially want to hear about practical experiences in a Canadian context!

To be considered as a presenter, email your proposal (250 words or less) to learning-apprentissage@tac-atc.ca by February 29. Include your organization, role and a short description of your proposed topic.

Let’s work together to build inclusive transportation systems for all Canadians. We look forward to your contribution!
