POLICY, PLANNING AND STANDARDS PROGRAM - VOTE 2702

The primary focus of the Policy, Planning and Standards Program is to plan and promote a safe, efficient and reliable multi-modal transportation system, including transit that supports strong communities, an enhanced quality of life and a healthy economy. To achieve this, the program provides leadership in setting strategic policy direction for the ministry as part of its integrated long-term planning, and works to enable a supportive policy and regulatory environment.

In addition, this program focuses on easing traffic congestion through the promotion of public transit, and facilitating the movement of people and goods along our highways and at our border crossings. The program is leading the government's investment in the Windsor Gateway including planning for a new or expanded international crossing by 2013. It also manages the ministry's inter-provincial and bilateral negotiations with the federal government on a range of transportation related issues including the implementation of various federal investment programs.
