Chair's message

March 29 marked our 25th anniversary! On that date in 1990, the TSB was created by an Act of Parliament and given the mandate to advance transportation safety. Over the past quarter century, we have evolved as an organization and have established ourselves as a world-class professional, independent investigative body that is working towards making Canada's transportation system safer.

Over the years, we have conducted hundreds of major investigations that have led to important changes in transportation safety. These include safe towing procedures for small vessels in ice-infested waters, aircraft terrain awareness and warning systems, the reduction of dangerous in-train forces, and tougher standards for pipelines, to name just a few.

I invite you to view and bookmark our TSB@25 website to read some of the highlights, employee blogs, and view photos throughout the year that will tell a bit of the TSB story.

With continued collaboration from stakeholders such as yourselves, the TSB will keep playing its part to improve safety throughout the next 25 years and beyond.
