Policy & Advocacy

Our mission is to work with governments and communities across the country to ensure that Canada’s rail sector remains globally competitive, innovative, sustainable, and most importantly, safe. We work closely with all levels of government to help them develop new regulations, rules and standards reflecting internal RAC evidence-based policy. In turn, we provide outreach, research and public education ensuring that Canadians are aware of the critical role rail plays in Canada.

RAC’s reputation as a trusted advocate for railways stems from the fact that it collects industry data, commissions research, and uses this to develop evidence-based policy positions. Our policies, showcase our commitment to developing and maintaining industry best practices in safety, innovation, reducing emissions and economic growth.
