Transport Canada, in partnership with the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario and le Ministère des Transports du Québec, has initiated the development of a Smart Corridor Concept of Operations for Ontario and Quebec, focusing on the region from Windsor to Quebec City, and south to the Canada/U.S. border.
The Corridor includes infrastructure components essential to the transportation networks of Ontario and Québec, which facilitate international trade and support domestic flows. This infrastructure includes:
- Road, rail and marine infrastructure; and
- Strategic ports, airports, intermodal facilities and border crossings.
The primary objective of the Smart Corridor is to support a sustainable, secure and efficient multimodal transportation system to keep Canada's economic heartland competitive, attractive for investment and essential for trade.
