Who We Are

Your Way Ahead

BCTA is a member-based, province-wide, non-partisan, non-profit motor carrier association formed solely to advance the interests of British Columbia motor carriers. Founded in 1913, BCTA includes among its members for-hire and private carriers hauling every conceivable type of freight including manufactured goods, heavy specialised commodities, bulk products, household goods and general freight. We also represent motor coach, courier, and waste management companies and suppliers to the industry.

Some of our members are Canada's largest trucking, courier and motor coach companies, but the majority are small to medium size, often family-owned enterprises.

Our motor carrier members operate about 16,000 vehicles, employ over 26,000 people and generate approximately $2.2 billion annually in revenues in British Columbia.

In addition to our direct members, we represent the following associations:

  • BC Association for Crane Safety
  • Concrete BC
  • Manufactured Housing Association of BC


Through consultation and communication with our industry, government and the public, we will promote a prosperous, safe, efficient and responsible commercial road transportation industry that contributes to the economy of British Columbia. We will provide value to our members through programs and services.


Leading a safer, stronger and more sustainable road transportation industry.
