 About the Institute

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.

Women In Supply Chain – ‘Distinguished Speaker Dinner Series’ featuring Trudy Fahie

Wednesday, January 14, 2015 | 4:30 pm

Please join us on January 14, 2015 for Trudy Fahie, President & CEO Walmart Canada Bank & EVP Financial Services.

The Van Horne Institute is pleased to announce the second phase of its very successful 2012 – 2013 Women in Supply Chain initiative with the creation of a Women In Supply Chain ‘Distinguished Speaker Dinner Series’.

WISC is one element of a broad, Alberta-based Human Resources Strategy aimed at ensuring that supply chain logistics becomes a profession of choice.

Furthermore, WISC is not a women’s issue but is a talent issue and for that reason, we are encouraging the participation of women and men, individuals, organizations and businesses.

Through the ‘Distinguished Speaker Dinner Series’, the Van Horne Institute is honored to now bring the supply chain community together once again to share the insights, experiences and knowledge of Canadian women who are leaders in their industries and in their supply chain roles.
