Trucking HR Canada (THRC) released its Labour Market Insights Special Vacancy Report for April 2023, which provides an analysis of newly released vacancy data from 2022.  The report states the number of truck driver vacancies in 2022 stood at an all-time high, with almost 25,600 vacant positions. 


The special report provides a summary of industry overall, and for transport truck drivers specifically. The average vacancy rate in Truck Transportation (NAICS 484) for 2022 was 8.6%, much higher than in 2021 (7.1%). The report states that the vacancy rate in the industry has more than tripled since Statistics Canada began collecting this data in 2015 and is more than two times higher than in 2019, prior to COVID. For Transport Truck Drivers (NOC 7511), the situation is similar, with the vacancy rate dropping from 7.9% in Q3 to 6.9% in Q4.
