The Chemistry Industry Association of Canada (CIAC) applauds today’s directive by Transport Minister Lisa Raitt, requiring rail companies to share information with municipalities about the nature and volume of dangerous goods being moved through their communities. CIAC was also pleased that Transport Canada chose to highlight the association’s Responsible Care® initiative, in a backgrounder accompanying today’s announcement.
Right now, Canada faces an incredible opportunity to grow and diversify its economy.
North American oil and gas production, pipeline and other infrastructure projects, and the growth of value-added industries related to resource development, could vastly change the Canadian economy over the next twenty years. That growth could span many sectors – including the chemistry industry – bringing stable, high-paying jobs along with it.
