Langley, British Columbia—The BC Trucking Association (BCTA) is pleased to announce that Cory Paterson will be joining our team as Director of Policy on Wednesday, February 22, 2017.

Cory will be responsible for, among other duties, advancing BCTA’s policy positions and the interests of our members with governments, the business community and key stakeholders.  

Cory brings to this role more than 15 years of extensive policy, research and advocacy experience along with an established network within government, the BC business community, and many other organizations with which BCTA regularly interacts.

His policy, research and advocacy experience comes through a diverse work background that includes two provincial governments (BC and Alberta), the federal government (based in BC), and industry – such as Devon Canada, a major oil and gas producer, and Enbridge, where he has spent the past four years in the company’s Vancouver office. 

Cory holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Economics from Simon Fraser University and an Executive Leadership Certificate from eCornell University.

BCTA looks forward to Cory’s contribution as he applies his experience in working with governments and public policy development to the varied and challenging issues he’ll face on behalf of BC’s road transportation industry.

BCTA, a member-based, non-profit, non-partisan advocacy organization, is the recognised voice of the provincial motor carrier industry, representing over 1,200 truck and motor coach fleets and over 250 suppliers to the industry. BCTA members operate over 13,000 vehicles, employ 26,000 people, and generate over $2 billion in revenue annually in the province.
