The Van Horne Institute is recognized within Canada and internationally as a leading institute of public policy, education, and research in transportation, supply chain and logistics, and regulated industries.
The Van Horne Institute assists industry, government, and the public in addressing issues affecting transportation, supply chain management and logistics and regulated industries in all areas of carriage relevant to the well-being and growth of industry and commerce.
Efficient and low-cost supply chain and logistics services are essential to both industry and the public in our geographically large country, so the evolution of sound industrial strategy, public policy, and progressive legislation and regulations are increasing in importance as business moves further towards globalization. Industry needs to be innovative to compete.
One of the key success drivers for the Institute is the development of the Canadian Centre for Advanced Supply Chain Management and Logistics. Other areas of significance include the Centre for Information & Communication's Digital Futures rural broadband project and its broader relation to advanced network and information technologies.
GO Productivity began life as Productivity Alberta, before expanding its services countrywide. Founded in 2008 as a service of the Government of Alberta to help the province’s construction and manufacturing sectors be more productive, more competitive and more profitable, Productivity Alberta transitioned into a private, not-for-profit corporation in October 2011 and, in November of 2014, grew into a nationwide company called GO Productivity. These changes have allowed the company to refocus its efforts and enhance its services.
GO Productivity offers a broad range of services that help companies identify and address gaps in productivity, maximize resources and be more efficient. We have our own in-house productivity experts as well as a vast network of resources to ensure that whatever the productivity challenge your business faces, we have the capacity to meet it head on.
