This bulletin summarizes the first in a series of reports on the performance of Canada’s transportation sector produced by The Conference Board of Canada’s Centre for Transportation Infrastructure. The report, entitled The Productivity Performance of Canada’s Transportation Sector: Market Forces and Governance Matter, attempts to achieve three objectives. First, it provides a framework for considering efficiency in transportation by defining what is meant by "productivity or productive efficiency" in the transportation sector. Second, it attempts to identify which transportation networks have achieved efficiency gains. Third, it analyzes the factors responsible for the noted improvements as a means of identifying policy approaches to enhance future performance.
