The Minister’s Awards for Transportation Innovation
are presented annually by the Minister of Transportation to recognize innovation in the transportation industry. Nominations can be submitted for any public transportation (Alberta Transportation or municipality) project in Alberta, and can be submitted by a local or provincial government body, or the engineering/construction firm involved in the project.
The six award categories are as follows:
- Design Innovation
- Construction Innovation
- Environmental Innovation
- Safety Innovation
- Operational Innovation
- Transit/Accessible Transportation Innovation
More information about each category can be found in the attached guidelines.
Nominations should focus on innovative transportation projects, particularly those that are “firsts” in Alberta. There is no limit on the scope or scale of a project.
