Government Addresses Trucking Labour Shortage
In an effort to strengthen the supply chain industry by addressing the need for skills and labour in the trucking sector, the government of Canada will invest up to $46.3 million to Trucking Human Resources Canada under the Sectoral Workforce Solutions Program. The organization's Driving Economic Recovery project will provide training subsidies and wage subsidies to support the recruitment, training, and onboarding of up to 1,400 new truck drivers and 1,200 workers for other in-demand occupations within the trucking sector. This project will address inconsistencies in driver training by developing a national standard that will support transferable skills and bridge the gap between entry-level training and employability throughout Canada.
