There’s the select few that were ‘born’ or ‘destined’ to do what they do for a living. Others say their career ‘found them’ at the right time in their life. Regardless of where we started, we’ve had to take the time to learn the skills, look to others for guidance, and understand how the industry operates in order to be where we are today.
It is no secret that the trucking industry is currently facing, and is expected to continue facing, a shortage of qualified drivers. So how does a trucking company, or any company that needs truck drivers, fill the need? Well, one way might be by recruiting truck drivers from outside Canada. Of course, like any legal/government process, there are ‘winding roads’ to accomplish the task, but it is doable in many cases. It would seem as well that the government knows that there’s a shortage, so in many cases, we expect that they’ll be on board with allowing Canadian employers to more readily ‘import’ truck drivers.
