Regional Transportation Champions Council

At the forefront of CivicAction’s Your32 campaign are our Regional Transportation Champions. These Champions are influential rising and senior leaders representing a range of sectors, including major corporations, labour organizations, academic institutions, non-profit organizations, and more. They are all motivated to make it easier for people and goods to move across our region, and are spreading the campaign to their employees, members, customers, supporters, and the public broadly.

List as of November 2013.
