Advocacy Services

Carrier members provide the financial support to AMTA through annual membership fees to ensure that we keep road transportation issues and needs at the forefront of provincial, federal and international agendas AMTA works with senior leaders of truck and bus fleets to develop and advocate for solutions to road transportation issues and opportunities.

Our programs and services have been developed in response to the problems, challenges and opportunities that are impacting our member companies. In order to be effective advocates for the issues that matter most to fleets that operate in Alberta, our programs and initiatives also aim to educate and inform our stakeholders and the general public about why those issues should matter to them too.

Our work encompasses a broad range of environmental, social, economic, safety and compliance matters that impact Alberta fleets. On trucking issues of national scope, we work in tandem with the Canadian Trucking Alliance, the federation of provincial trucking associations. Similarly, we work with the Canadian Motor Coach Association to advocate for the motor coach industry.

AMTA positions are developed in response to the problems, challenges and opportunities that are impacting our members. Policies are developed by our member-led committee comprised of carrier members in conjunction with AMTA staff. Through participation on committees, responding to members surveys, or just by calling and emailing us, members play a vital role in strengthening AMTA’s voice.
