In Ontario, representatives from CAA Central Ontario, GO Transit, Ontario Motor Coach Association, Ontario School Bus Association, Ontario Trucking Association and Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) hold an awards breakfast to recognize people from the industry for their outstanding contributions. These prestigious awards have been presented by the Ontario Minister of Transportation for the past seven years.
