Welcome to one of North America's leading trade associations - the
Ontario Trucking Association.
Founded in 1926 by industry visionaries, OTA has been an innovative,
responsible and results oriented organization from day one. Few other
trade organizations in Canada are as effective, or as widely recognized
throughout North America and the rest of the world. OTA members share a
common philosophy that is contained in the OTA Guiding Principles.
Accolades like those recently published in the Globe and Mail
("...The Ontario Trucking Association and the Canadian Trucking Alliance
have been amongst the most successful lobby groups in the land."),
don’t come easy for any trade association. The starting point is a
strong, visionary membership. This must be followed up by a dedicated,
professional organization. The Ontario Trucking Association and the
Canadian Trucking Alliance are two such organizations. (CTA is a
federation of the provincial trucking associations. By joining OTA, a
company automatically becomes a member of CTA.)
OTA goes the extra mile to create a fair and equitable business
environment where the industry can grow and prosper. With one hand on
the heartbeat of the industry, and the other on the pulse of government,
we make recommendations that have a direct impact on legislation,
regulation and business practices that govern trucking.
OTA speaks for the industry in the legislatures, courts and media on
a host of issues. OTA is the unified voice of the trucking industry in
An association must provide tangible benefits for its members. OTA is
an organization that “puts point on the board”. If you are
giving thought to joining OTA we encourage you to take a look at how we
put membership dollars to work.
