Canadian Trucking Alliance

The Canadian Trucking Alliance (CTA) is a federation of seven provincial and regional trucking associations, including BCTA. CTA represents a broad cross-section of the trucking industry—some 4,500 carriers, owner-operators and industry suppliers. BCTA members are automatically members of CTA with no payment of additional membership dues.

CTA represents the industry in Canada and the US with support and feedback from BCTA and the other provincial and regional associations.

CTA is uniquely positioned to successfully represent the industry’s viewpoint on national and international policy, regulatory and legislative issues that affect trucking and works to raise the profile of the trucking industry.


Motor Coach Canada

Motor Coach Canada (MCC) is a national association representing motor coach and tour operators in Canada as well as industry suppliers. Free membership in MCC is a benefit that BCTA provides to our motor coach members.

Established in 1995 and governed by a Board of Directors equally comprising motor coach and tour operators, MCC is the only national association representing the interests of companies supplying scheduled, charter, and tour services.

How We Serve: a message from BCTA's Past Chairperson

There are those who are frustrated with the situation they find themselves in but never seem to participate in working towards a solution. Here at BCTA, we have a diverse group of business people determined to work together to discover and encourage solutions for the betterment of the entire road transport industry.

BCTA needs you to participate, whether you are part of a large national carrier, a small provincial trucking firm or a local motor coach operator. Our positive interactions with regulatory officials and other stakeholders continue to grow, and we need your voice to not only bring forward concerns but also be part of creating solutions.

To members who are already active, we can’t do it without you. For those who aren’t yet, we encourage all members to get involved and work together to provide solutions that benefit us all.

If you are not a member of BCTA, please consider joining the association, step up to participate in our many committees and consider joining the Board down the road.

Our company has been a member of the association for decades now, and I’ve personally been involved in BCTA for the past dozen years or so. I’ve never regretted it. I’ve learned so much from networking with the leaders of this industry and feel very honoured to serve as the Chairman of this great association for the next couple of years.
