Message from Transport Canada on COVID-19
During the global COVID-19 pandemic, Transport Canada remains committed to its top priority: the safety and security of Canadians and Canada’s transportation system, as well as ensuring the continued flow of essential goods and services that Canadians need to remain healthy.
We’re working with the Public Health Agency of Canada, provincial and territorial governments, transportation industry stakeholders, and Indigenous Peoples to reduce the risk of transmission.
We would like to acknowledge everyone involved in transportation who continues to keep people and cargo moving. Thank you to the air crews, and flight attendants, air traffic controllers, airport and airline employees, port workers, mariners, train crews, and so many others who are getting essential goods and services that Canadians need. A particular thanks to the thousands of truck drivers working long hours to ensure health care and other critical sectors have the supplies they need to operate, and groceries stores remain fully stocked for Canadians.
