What you need to know about the Freight Transport Operator (FTO) for the U.S. and Canada

What are the requirements for the FTO?

The FTO is an entity that operates under the Transport Canada licence.

The FTOs are the largest and most regulated freight transport operators in the world.

The government regulates all types of freight and has the power to regulate any entity involved in transporting freight.

The regulator can regulate the type of vehicle or vehicle transporter that a particular FTO operates on a certain type of property.

These rules can include rules for the type and type of freight that the FTOs can operate on.

The rules are generally set out in the Transport Management Plan, or TMP.

The TMP lays out the regulations for the various types of FTOs.

The regulations can also cover the management of freight, such as handling and loading, and the provision of facilities for the transport of freight.

For more information on the FTOPS, see Transport Management Plans, the Transportation Management Plan and the Transport Industry Management Plan.

What are their responsibilities?

The responsibility of the FTOB is to ensure that a FTO provides a safe and efficient operation of its property and to provide its customers with a safe, safe, and efficient way of doing business.

FTOBs are required to ensure: the safety of their property and the safety and welfare of their customers and staff; the safety, health and welfare, and well-being of their employees and customers; and the protection and preservation of the environment and the health of their animals.

They are required by Transport Canada to have a written report on the management and safety of the property, and their management of their businesses.

They must also provide detailed information on their business and operations to the Minister of Transportation.

For information about the FTOP, see the TMP for Transport Operations.

What happens if an FTO fails to meet these obligations?

The Minister of Transport can revoke the FTOT and any FTO licence that is in the possession of the Minister, if he or she considers it is in breach of these obligations.

In that event, the Minister must revoke the licence immediately.

If the Minister determines that a licence has been revoked for breach of the requirements of the Tmp, the licence will be suspended until the conditions of the licence are met.

The Minister must give the Minister a written notice of the revocation of the licences.

If there is a breach of any of the obligations set out under the TmP, the FTODO must provide the Minister with a written explanation.

The Government must provide information about any violations of the duties of the operator, including: the nature of the violations; the name and address of the person or persons responsible; the date and time of the violation; the duration of the breach and any remedial action taken; and any actions that could be taken to prevent the repetition of the same violation.

The details of the penalty that could apply include fines, and up to one year in prison.

What if an operator or employee fails to comply with the requirements set out above?

If an operator is found to have contravened the TmdP, Transport Canada may suspend the licence and impose any conditions it considers appropriate.

If Transport Canada decides to suspend the operator’s licence, it must give notice to the FTOS and to the operator of the business or premises that the licence was revoked.

The notice must specify the suspension, the type or types of conditions that may apply, and any conditions that could potentially be imposed.

If an FTODOME, or the FTOCOME (the appropriate authority for a foreign territory), decides to appeal the decision, the decision must be appealed to the Federal Court of Canada.

The Federal Court can also grant relief to an operator that is found in breach.

For details, see What happens to the TMDP?


What happens when an FTOCOPER or FTODOCOMO decides to challenge a decision made by Transport Minister or the Minister?

If Transport Minister has issued an order for a licence revocation, the operator can appeal that order.

If a licence is revoked under the provisions of the Transport Ministry, the appeals process may take up to a year.

The appeals process is subject to a number of requirements and the decision may be appealed.

An appeal is heard on an individual basis, in which the Minister or a person designated by the Minister can make submissions, including those from the public and those that are made by the operator or FTO.

The appeal must be heard by the appeals panel or tribunal.

The court may also have the authority to order the operator to make further arrangements, including an undertaking to make changes to the operation of the operation.

For detailed information about appeals, see Appeal procedures.

What is the status of an appeal?

In most cases, an appeal is resolved by the Federal Minister of Health or the Commissioner of Transport.

In certain circumstances, the appeal may be heard before the Federal Tribunal of Canada (TFOCOM).
