As of March 2020, there is an acute shortage of 20,500 drivers and immediate action is required to address adverse impacts on Canada’s economy.
“Our country relies on skilled workers to keep our economy growing. Quality labour market information allows us to identify industry needs and enables us to take action to ensure a stable and reliable trucking industry in Canada,” -
“Good salaries in a growing sector, better work-life balance, investments in innovative technology and green-friendly initiatives are just some of the approaches we are taking. We need to do more to resolve industry challenges to ensure a stable and reliable trucking transportation network for the road ahead.”
“Our shared goal is to ensure that drivers entering the industry meet enhanced training standards, improving road safety outcomes for all road users,”
“I have heard horror stories from some of the foreign truck drivers I meet on the road…they are getting paid very little and not getting proper training…I am fortunate to be working with Mr. Richards and Class One…he found me a good boss.”
“Do your homework and make sure you are working for a good and reliable company…Also make sure you get the proper training in Canada…Class One took care of everything from the time I landed at the airport to my first full shift on the road.”
“The acute shortage of truck drivers in Canada is felt beyond the trucking industry. Trucking is a lifeline for key industries such as forestry, agriculture, auto manufacturing, construction, as well as wholesale and retail.”
“Outside of work, we also have a strong HR support system to help the foreign drivers transition to their new lives in Canada…From recruitment to landing and training, we have a strict protocol for our foreign drivers…they are not getting into our trucks unless we are absolutely confident about their ability to handle the rigs on Canadian highways,”
“The truck transportation industry is unable to fill roughly one out of every 15 positions – mostly truck drivers. “Under a status quo scenario, i.e. assuming the sector’s ability to recruit and retain workers does not improve, the truck driver shortage will worsen, with vacancies projected to surpass 25,000 positions within the next three to five years.”
