In the fall of 2010, the Smart About Salt Program received the prestigious Educational Achievement Award from the Transportation Association of Canada in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Nominees for the award are evaluated on the basis of:
  • Contribution made to the education/training of the people involved in the program;
  • Degree of innovation in the approach and execution of the program;
  • Payoff or benefits achieved; and
