We are the connectors, the movers, the carriers, the pulse, the guardians of the highway—and, we are only getting started.
Since 1938, the Alberta Motor Transport Association and its members have advanced the commercial transportation industry through safety programs, progressive policy and partnerships. Our influence is evident on every highway—where the work we do, the training and expertise we impart, becomes clear-cut confidence behind the wheel.
As a province-wide, not-for-profit association, the AMTA is governed by an annually elected Board of Directors. Our Board determines the AMTA’s long-range goals, setting our policies, programs and budgets. We have a head office in Calgary and a satellite office in Edmonton.
The Mark of Momentum
Alberta’s transportation sector is vital to our province, driving all aspects of our economy forward.
For nearly eight decades, we have created strong relationships with all levels of political leadership, advising on important issues and giving a voice to our members. On national and international matters especially, we partner closely with the Canadian Trucking Alliance and Motor Coach Canada. Whether it’s shaping vital legislation, new regulations or business practices, the AMTA is on the ground floor, helping command the future of the transportation industry.

Steering Safety Practices
In the transportation sector, safety is at the root of all we do.
Reducing workplace injuries and illnesses is not simply a goal—it’s a responsibility ingrained in the AMTA’s mandate. Partnering with Alberta’s Worker’s Compensation Board, we design safety training and education programs that are proactive, responsive and tailored to each member’s needs. Not only do they help you meet regulatory and legislative requirements, but they also unify the entire transportation sector in a drive towards excellence.

By combining and mobilizing our efforts, the AMTA and its members create collective momentum, raising the bar for the entire transportation sector. From special events and conferences to breaking news and current affairs, we connect you with influential peers and the information most crucial to your business.
