Trucking HR Canada (THRC) has announced that they have secured new funding through the Federal Government’s Youth Employment Skills Strategy that will support the training and onboarding of 200+ new young workers to the sector.

The new injection of funding will support employers with driver training and onboarding incentives, as THRC’s labour market information shows:

  • Our workforce is aging; 27% is 55 or older, making looming retirements a significant risk.
  • Only 8.1% of our workforce is 25 years or younger, highlighting the need to invest in the next generation of workers.
  • Labour shortages are not isolated to Transport Truck Drivers; significant shortages are being felt among other key occupations, such as
    • Shippers and Receivers
    • Dispatchers
    • Delivery and Courier Service Drivers
