Transport Minister of Canada, Marc Garneau, will address the 2017 ITS World Congress Montréal on Transportation 2030, his vision for the future of transportation in Canada.

Garneau’s entire career has been in the public service. During his 15 years in the Royal Canadian Navy, he was selected from more than four thousand applicants to become the first Canadian astronaut to fly in space. He served as a crew member aboard three Space Shuttle missions, spending more than 675 hours in space.

Garneau has also served as Vice President, and then later as President, of the Canadian Space Agency. He was appointed Companion of the Order of Canada, Canada’s highest civilian Honour in 2003.

In 2015, Garneau was named Minister of Transport by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. In his position as Minister of Transport, he has emphasised the important role played by ITS in Canada and worked diligently to put forth his strategic vision for transportation in Canada, Transportation 2030.

“Minister Garneau is looking forward to the opportunity to share his vision and plan for Canada’s transportation system through Transportation 2030 with the thought leaders and industry experts that will be gathered for the ITS World Congress event,” said Chris Philp, Chair & CEO, ITS Canada. “His plan for Transportation 2030 groups actions under five themes, covering all modes of transport and activities such as setting and enforcing regulations. This plan promotes a ‘whole system’ view to make sure that all parts of Canada’s transportation system work well together to support the country’s priorities and need for a safe and efficient system.”
