Committees

The Canadian Courier & Logistics Association (CCLA) has a number of working committees dealing with various issues affecting the ongoing viability and effective operation of courier service firms operating in Canada.

Each committee is chaired by an individual from a member firm to ensure all actions and decisions remain as grass-roots focused as possible.

On joining the CCLA, individuals from member firms are strongly encouraged to serve on those Committees where their professional skills and expertise may be best applied.

Our Current Roster of Active Committees Includes:

Cargo Security Committee: Responsible for monitoring, communicating and addressing changes involving the Trans-Border and International trade arena. This encompasses Customs, Security, Finance, DFAIT, Statistics Canada, CFIA, Agri-Food Canada as well as all other Government agencies involved in the process on both sides of the border, including changes to import and export regulations, policy and procedures at all government levels which may affect Courier businesses viability in Canada, proactive representation of courier interests which includes lobbying, preparation of industry briefs and to conduct information based meetings of benefit to members geared to inform and unite courier interests toward a common goal.

As this area is vast and ever changing, several sub-committees of this group have been created and are activated as required at a moment's notice; this listing fluctuates as the sub-committees are issue-based, addressing on-going and fluid developments in the trade environment.
