As a business owner in the transportation industry, can you effect change on your own without the benefit of a trade association? Can a Trade Association survive without you?

Trade Associations are born out of the need for industry members to make their views known to government bodies that regulate how they do business. ISBOA has a much more effective voice when everyone speaks the same message over a single business owner. Together we lead, divided we follow!

ISBOA’s 5 year Strategic Plan focusses on:

  • Developing and implementing a solution to the competitive procurement process and one that is viable for the industry;
  • Developing ISBOA into a full service, sustainable association;
  • Restoring a partnership between companies and consortia, that is based on respect and trust; and,
  • Developing a strong unified industry voice.

ADVOCACY AND LOBBYING: ISBOA has developed positions/submissions and is working with governments on:

  • The Procurement Process             
  • Ontario Registered Pension Plan 
  • Driver Turnover                           
  • Administrative Monetary Penalty System
  • 2-Way Hand Held Radios
  • Markings/Lettering on Buses
  • Standard Clauses in Contracts
  • Teacher’s Labour Disruptions
  • 8-Light Implementation
  • Strobe lights
  • Stop Arm Violations

“INFORMATION IS KNOWLEDGE”- ISBOA newsletters provide information on industry and government issues, and what you need to know, e.g. grants
HR Downloads Program; driver training on Anti-Bullying; Log Books; Inspection books; Record of Duty Status and more.
