Glossary / Fleet safety / Canadian Council of Motor Council Administrators (CCMCA)

The Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators (CCMTA) is a non-profit organization that serves as the collective voice for motor vehicle and road safety and regulation across Canada. The council works with government officials, stakeholders, and industry representatives to develop and implement transportation policies, standards, and programs that ensure safe, efficient, and sustainable transportation.

Within the broader transportation industry, the CCMTA plays a particularly important role in the trucking sector. The council’s work in this area focuses on developing national standards and best practices for
commercial vehicle safety and regulation. This includes everything from ensuring the safe operation of commercial trucks on the road, to promoting industry-wide compliance with safety regulations and reducing the environmental impact of commercial transportation.

One of the key initiatives undertaken by the CCMTA in relation to the trucking industry is the National Safety Code (NSC). The NSC is a set of standards that apply to all commercial vehicles and drivers operating on Canadian roads. These standards cover areas such as driver qualifications,
vehicle maintenance, safety inspections, and hours of service regulations.

In addition to the NSC, the CCMTA also works closely with provincial and territorial governments to develop and implement other safety and regulatory programs specific to the trucking industry. This includes initiatives aimed at reducing emissions and improving fuel efficiency, as well as programs designed to promote compliance with safety regulations and reduce the number of accidents involving commercial vehicles.
