collaboration, and determination have
played a major role in the achievements
of Canada's railway sector - including
its suppliers - and will continue to
be essential as new challenges and
opportunities emerge.

L'OTC fait progresser le bien-être socioéconomique du citoyen,
entre autres en favorisant l'efficacité et le bon fonctionnement du
réseau ferroviaire. Comment?
Nous élaborons et appliquons des règles pour encadrer la
concurrence et égaliser les chances des concurrents.
Nous réglons des différends entre d'une part, des sociétés
ferroviaires, et d'autre part les expéditeurs, les passagers et
les collectivités.
Nous fournissons de l'information pour soutenir la
transparence, assurer le bon fonctionnement des marchés et aider
les intervenants à comprendre leurs droits et responsabilités.
Pour atteindre ces objectifs dans le secteur ferroviaire,
nous accordons les permis d'exploitation; nous approuvons
la construction et nous supervisons l'abandon de voies; nous
déterminons le revenu admissible maximal du CN et du CFCP
pour le transport des céréales de l'Ouest; nous fixons les
tarifs d'interconnexion; nous arbitrons les différends entre
les compagnies de fret et les expéditeurs qui acceptent cette
méthode; et nous tranchons une vaste gamme de dossiers.
Nos responsabilités sont nombreuses et variées. Certaines
remontent au mandat original de la Commission des chemins de
fer. Pour continuer à fournir des services efficaces, l'OTC doit
faire comme le secteur ferroviaire : suivre l'évolution du milieu.
Nous vivons dans un monde en accélération. Les organismes
de réglementation modernes savent qu'ils doivent ajouter
l'engagement, l'agilité et l'innovation à leurs cordes traditionnelles
que sont l'indépendance, l'expertise et l'impartialité.
Je vais maintenant vous parler des grands changements qui
nous aideront en ce sens.

born as the Board of Railway Commissioners in 1904. It is Canada's
longest-standing independent, expert tribunal and regulator.
The CTA advances Canadians' economic and social well-being
in part by helping to foster an efficient, smoothly-running national
rail system. This means:
Establishing and applying a rules framework that allows for
market entry and competition on a level playing field.
Resolving disputes between, on the one hand, railways companies
and, on the one hand, shippers, passengers, or communities.
Gathering and disseminating information to support
transparency, well-functioning markets, and stakeholders'
understanding of their rights and responsibilities.
The specific activities that we undertake to accomplish these
goals in the rail sector include licencing railway companies;
approving the construction of new rail lines and overseeing the
discontinuance or transfer of operations of old ones; determining
CN's and CP's Maximum Revenue Entitlement for the movement of
Western grain; setting interswitching rates; arbitrating rates and
service levels when freight rail companies and shippers agree;
and mediating and adjudicating a wide variety of matters.
This is a long and diverse set of responsibilities, some of
which date back to the original mandate of the Board of Railway
Commissioners. Like the rail sector itself, the CTA's effectiveness
in delivering its services depends on keeping pace with evolving
conditions. We live in an era of acceleration, and modern
regulators know that we have to complement our traditional - and
still-essential - qualities of independence, expertise, and
impartiality with engagement, agility, and innovation.
Let me talk about some of the key changes afoot to help us do so.

La modernisation de la réglementation

Regulatory Modernization

In May 2016, the CTA launched the Regulatory Modernization
Initiative, or RMI, the most sweeping review in its history of the
regulations it administers. Many of these regulations date back
25 years or more, and need to be updated to reflect changes in
business models, user expectations, and best practices in the
regulatory field.
Three goals anchor the RMI:
* Ensuring that industry's obligations are clear, predictable,
and relevant to a range of existing and emerging business
practices.
* Ensuring that the demands associated with compliance are only
as high as necessary to achieve the regulations' purposes.
* Facilitating the efficient and effective identification and
59
correction of instances of non-compliance.

❱

En mai 2016, l'OTC lançait son initiative de modernisation de
la réglementation ou IMR, la plus vaste refonte des règlements
qu'elle administre. La plupart de ces règlements ont 25 ans ou
plus. Il faut les mettre au pas des nouveaux modèles d'affaires,
des attentes des usagers et des pratiques exemplaires du
domaine de la réglementation.
L'IMR repose sur trois buts :
* veiller à ce que les obligations de l'industrie soient claires,
prévisibles et pertinentes en ce qui a trait à une gamme de
pratiques opérationnelles actuelles ou émergentes;
* veiller à ce que les exigences de conformité soient seulement
aussi élevées que nécessaire pour atteindre les objectifs visés
par les règlements;
* favoriser la détection et la correction efficientes et efficaces
59
des cas de non-conformité.
