TAC's origins date back to 1914, when the Canadian Good Roads Association (CGRA) was founded. CGRA was mainly concerned with the establishment of a superior national road network and was one of the main forces behind construction of the Trans-Canada Highway.

As a national centre of transportation expertise, their goal is to provide a neutral forum to gather and exchange relevant ideas and information on technical guidelines and best practices. TAC actively promote the importance of transportation to Canada’s economic well-being, as well as safe, secure, efficient and environmentally and financially sustainable transportation services.
