CIAC Product Movements, Ontario

  • Majority of goods transported by road or rail

  • Of those that are regulated, TDG Class 8 followed by TDG Class 3 are the most common

  • Both small and large means of containment

  • Both mixed and homogeneous loads


During which mode of transport are there more dangerous goods incidents?

  • Road

  • Rail

Transport Canada Answer

Over 90% of in transit dangerous goods incidents occur on the road


Where do most of the dangerous goods transportation incidents occur?

  • In transit

  • Loading/unloading

Transport Canada Answer

Only about 30% of dangerous goods incidents occur in transit


What is the trend in the number of dangerous goods transportation incidents in Quebec?

  • Going up

  • Steady

  • Going down

Transport Canada Answer

Significant decline in TDG incidents over the last 10 years

(From ~31 per year to ~15 per year)


If incidents are more likely to occur at a location, rather than along the transportation route, and if the number of incidents are trending down …

…why are we here today?

We are here because…

  • Of our concern for your community safety and security, and

  • We need and rely upon safe and efficient transportation to receive raw materials and to ship products to customers in North America and exports to global markets

CIAC Responsible Care

  • Condition of membership since 1985

  • Commitment to improved health, safety and environmental performance and to social responsibility

  • Ethic and three Codes of Practice underpin the Responsible Care management system

Transportation Elements

  • Transportation risk management

    • Select safe mode

    • Select safe routes

    • Select safe carriers

  • Transportation emergency response

    • TEAP III

  • TransCAER

    • Communicate with communities along transportation routes


While Responsible Care has played a key role in reducing the frequency and severityof incidents involving transportation of dangerous goods...

...incidents do happen!

So we have...

  • A transportation emergency response program designed to have the capability and capacity to safely and efficiently respond, control, contain, stabilize and mitigate the impacts of a chemical transportation incident

  • Standards for CIAC member companies and their transportation emergency response contractors with assessments for both




Awareness concerning

Emergency Response


A voluntary initiative led by CIAC and its partners to assist communities – geographic and organizational – to be aware of:

  • Our products and transportation routes

  • CIAC member companies willingness to share information and provide assistance in case of an incident, and

  • What we are doing to reduce risks

TransCAER Ways and Means
