About the TSB

The TSB is an independent agency, created by an Act of Parliament (the Canadian Transportation Accident Investigation and Safety Board Act), that came into force on 29 March 1990. The TSB consists of up to five Board members, including a chairperson, and has approximately 220 employees. Our Head Office is located in Gatineau, Quebec; however, most investigation staff are located in various regional and field offices across Canada where they are better able to respond quickly to transportation occurrences anywhere in the country.
