Transportation is not just about getting people from here to there. It’s about the journey. The Transportation sector plays a crucial role in the Canadian tourism industry, with air, rail, ground and water being the major transportation modes serving travelers countrywide. It is the only tourism sector in Canada employing more men than women and fewer younger workers.

From direct, efficient air travel to luxury cruise ships, transportation experiences often set the tone for travel and leave impressions that can last a lifetime.
