Welcome to the TransCanada Yellowhead Highway Association

What was originally a fur traders route for the Hudson's Bay Company in the early 1800’s has grown to be a significant trade corridor.  With the advent of motorized transportation the visionaries of the time began a journey and organization that for over 60 years has remained committed to its mandate and its members.  The Trans Canada Yellowhead Highway Association is a four (4) province, non profit association established in 1947 to advocate for the development, maintenance, use and prosperity of the Yellowhead Corridor.

The communities that surround the Yellowhead Highway, from Winnipeg to Masset on the Queen Charlotte Islands and through to Hope, recognized many years ago that access to efficient transportation routes were critical to their communities economic and community development.  Collectively they began to lobby for the development and recognition of this route as critical part of the trans Canada transportation system.

The collaborative effort of the communities, constantly advocating to the provincial and federal governments, initially for the construction and now for improvements and upgrades, have achieved substantial success and influence.  Today with the Port of Prince Rupert, northern western Canadian natural resource exploration and extraction, agriculture, tourism, bio-energy industries and inland multimodal ports, the Trans Canada Yellowhead Highway is more important than ever.
