Trucking HR Canada (THRC) released its quarterly Labour Market Snapshot last week, which provides updated THRC analysis and their perspective on how the recovery in the Canadian economy is progressing and on the mechanisms driving the demand for key trucking and logistics occupations moving forward. The January 2023 report shows that the labour crisis in the trucking and logistics sector continues to threaten the sustainability and competitiveness of the Canadian supply chain.


The special report provides a summary of 2022, and describes how total employment in trucking and logistics during the year was 737,000 workers, down from 755,000 in 2021 but still above the 10-year average of 705,000 (2013 to 2022). Total demand for drivers is up by 31,695 driver jobs to 339,500 in Q3 2022, the labour supply in the occupation also increased, although by a slower rate. Estimated total supply of truck drivers in Q3 of 2022 was 319,300, up 26,400 workers from the second quarter.
