Chair's message

As summer sets in, Canadians look forward to some vacation time.

It has been a busy quarter. Over the past 3 months, we released 10 investigations reports, and have deployed to 20 new transportation accidents across the country. We have also released 3 blogs and assessments to our recommendations on the ongoing Lac-Mégantic investigation. On 1 July 2014, Part I of the new TSB regulations comes into effect, strengthening the rules governing accident reporting in Canada.

I encourage you to read this Quarterly Review and share in the TSB's recent accomplishments.
