It is an excellent career choice for any newcomer to Canada, and there are many companies looking to hire foreigners and recent immigrants. The Canadian trucking industry is experiencing severe labour shortages and there are plenty of opportunities for work. You need stamina, dedication, and a strong work ethic.
Canada has a high demand for truck drivers. According to reports by Trucking HR Canada, Canada will have a shortage of 25,000 truck drivers by 2023. 61% of trucking jobs in Canada reportedly went unfilled in 2019 and it is expected to increase by 25% by 2023. Learning to drive the truck is pretty easy for almost everyone. There are a few skills used in driving the truck that give most people some difficulty at first (back the trailer and shifting gears) but if you follow instructions and do what they say you/anyone can do it.
