TRANSPORTATION CONSORTIUM BACKGROUND
In 2006/2007 the Ministry of Education initiated student transportation reforms to build
capacity to deliver safe, effective and efficient services. The three-year plan (to 2010)
includes a requirement for boards to provide transportation through consortia, to achieve
equity in funding allocations and to reduce the administrative burden of delivering
As a result, in fall 2007, approval was given for the Algoma Huron-Superior
Transportation Services (AHSTS) consortia agreements between the full partners,
Algoma District School Board (ADSB) and Huron-Superior Catholic District School Board
(HSCDSB) and between the consortium and the purchases services Boards.
The agreements have been prepared and signed by both ADSB and HSCDSB who
make up AHSTS and by the Boards purchasing transportation services, which include
CSD du Grand Nord de l’Ontario and CSD catholique du Nouvel Ontario.
The 2008/2009 school year saw the establishment of the new transportation consortia to
better serve students and parents.
