Canadians deserve a safe, efficient, and environmentally sustainable transportation system. The Canadian Transportation Agency is the federal regulatory body that ensures that the national transportation system runs efficiently and smoothly, and oversees consumer protection for air passengers and the protection of persons with disabilities' human rights. It plays a critical role in the nation's transportation network.

Today, the Minister of Transport, Pablo Rodriguez, announced the following two appointments at the Canadian Transportation Agency:

"We are appointing qualified members to the Canadian Transportation Agency to ensure a competitive, accessible, and sustainable transportation system.
