One of the highlights of joining the APTA is the opportunity to help shape our industry by serving on one of our committees.

Associated Trades Committee

The Associated Trades Committee is comprised of suppliers of the trucking industry. It plays an integral part in our events throughout the year by organizing a Charity Golf Tournament, Tech Nights, raising money for charity and being part of the Atlantic Truck Show Advisory Committee.


The Health & Safety Council is responsible for promoting safety within the trucking industry.

Its objectives are the following:

  • Work with and assist other organizations and agencies in the safety field
  • Stay ahead of the regulation changes in Atlantic Canada & North America
  • Promote a positive image of safety within the industry and the general public
  • Promote programs to aid in the reduction of accidents and personal injuries
  • Promote the importance of the driver’s role in the trucking industry
  • Deal with Long Combination Vehicle (LCV) related matters
  • Offer an accident review service
  • Assist in the organization of the Transportation Safety Conference


The Awards& Recognition Committee will review the awards and recognition criteria from time to time to make sure they are current as well as support the annual awards process by ensuring deadlines are met and required committees fulfill their nomination and selection responsibilities. The committee will also select the Driver of the Month winners and coordinate driver appreciation events.  

FINANCE Committee 

The Finance Committee oversees everything related to the associations finances: budget & financials, the APTA pension plan as well as the APTA's investment portfolio. The Charity Committee also falls under the scope of the Finance Committee.
