Name of creator
Maritime Freight Rates Commission was established at Moncton, New Brunswick, after passage of the Maritimes Freight Rates Act in 1927 as a permanent watchdog for regional interests in transportation policy. The Atlantic Provinces Transportation Commission is its successor, supported by the four Atlantic provinces: New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland and Labrador, and it is affiliated with the Atlantic Provinces Chamber of Commerce.
The Commission and its successor have transferred library material to the Provincial Archives since 1981.
