Summary

Ontario's transportation network connects us to the global marketplace, and to one another. It ensures that goods can get to market, commuters can travel between home and work, and that businesses will invest and operate in the province to their full potential.

The Ministry of Transportation strives to be a world leader in moving people and goods safely and efficiently to support a globally competitive economy and a high quality of life.

The Ministry's policies, programs, and strategic investments – including maintenance, renewal and expansion – promote mobility, connectivity, and productivity, while supporting the province’s strategic objectives. Major programs include planning for and investing in critical transportation infrastructure such as transit, highways, bridges, strategic corridors, and advancing driver and vehicle safety.

Ontario has an excellent long-term road safety record and is consistently one of the safest road jurisdictions in North America. The Ministry of Transportation's Road User Safety Program leads and actively participates with other jurisdictions in Canada and the United States in developing, promoting and evaluating road safety initiatives and best practices. The program works with many partners, including law enforcement agencies, community groups, safety organizations, the medical community, international researchers and research institutions, public health units, injury prevention practitioners, the insurance industry and the private sector, to reduce collisions, fatalities and injuries on our roads.

The key responsibilities of the program are to: set safety standards and develop policies, programs, legislation and regulations for road users, commercial carriers and motor vehicles; inspect, monitor and enforce compliance with those standards; manage and deliver driver improvement and commercial vehicle safety programs; conduct leading edge research to inform policy development and guide public education and road safety marketing campaigns; improve public awareness and promote road safety; manage revenue derived from driver and vehicle products and services; focus on the customer by transforming our programs to enable faster, better and more efficient service delivery and introducing digital services; and manage and protect personal information and identity. It also supports the delivery of programs for other ministries.

The program establishes policies and standards and oversees the delivery of driver and vehicle licensing, registration and other services by our government and private sector partners.

Provincial Highways Management Program - vote 2704

The Provincial Highways Management Program oversees the provincial highway network and related transportation services (including year-round highway maintenance) and protects public investments in highway infrastructure. Program management strategies are developed and implemented to maximize the effectiveness of investments in this infrastructure.

The provincial highway network provides safe mobility for people and goods, and promotes economic, environmental and social sustainability. The program delivers these activities through internal resources, partnerships and private sector service providers.

Activities include investment planning, engineering, design, property acquisition, asset rehabilitation and renewal, new construction, contract oversight, corridor management (such as managing development adjacent to highways), summer and winter maintenance (such as shoulder grading / snow and ice control) for the provincial highway network, environmental assessments, and provision of traveller information services to the public. The program is also responsible for remote airports in Ontario’s Far North, ferry services in locations across the province, First Nations roads funding, road improvements in unincorporated areas, highway service centres (ONroute), and the production of the Ontario Road Map.

The program also oversees the Owen Sound Transportation Company Limited, an Operational Enterprise Agency of the Province that directly delivers transportation services for three ferry operations.
