Toronto, Ontario, Canada – October 1, 2020: Today, the Conference of Minority Transportation Officials (“COMTO”) announced the official launch of the Toronto and Region Chapter. This chapter is COMTO’s first international chapter and the first chapter outside the United States.
The Toronto and Region Chapter marks the beginning of COMTO’s Canadian presence, welcoming members from across Canada and spanning the entire transportation industry – from chief executive officers who determine the direction of major transit systems to the mechanics and operators who ensure the safe passage of millions of riders every day. COMTO Toronto and Region will continue the critical work of COMTO, focusing on providing opportunity for development and advancement in the transportation industry for people who identify as being from an underrepresented group.
The new chapter was founded by members from the Toronto Transit Commission (“TTC”) and New Flyer Industries Canada ULC (“New Flyer”).
