Chair's message

The coming of spring always ushers in new, invigorating ideas. It reminds us that while some chapters close, others open. Over the last few months, we concluded our investigation into the First Air accident in Resolute Bay and continued working on many more investigations – using world class technology. But there’s still more to be done. With the closing of one of the coldest winters in recent years, this spring will present new opportunities to focus our renewed energy. And we will continue to push for new ways of making Canada’s transportation system safer. We look forward to the new challenges ahead.
