Electronic commerce, modernized supply chains and innovative logistics processes are creating new opportunities in the trucking and logistics industry. We know that workers, employers and post-secondary institutions need knowledge and information to take advantage of these opportunities and stimulate our economy.

That’s why the Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Labor, the Honorable Patty Hajdu, announced $ 2.8 million in funding to HR Trucking Canada through the Government of Canada’s Sectoral Initiatives Support Program (SIPIP), which will be used to develop the sectoral labor market information needed to shape the industry of tomorrow.

This project supports the goal of SWIS to address current and future shortages of skilled labor by supporting the development and dissemination of sectoral labor market information. The project will develop innovative bilingual tools to assist employers in recruiting and retaining employees from untapped labor pools, such as women, Aboriginal peoples, persons with disabilities, visible minorities, women and men. veterans, military personnel in transition and youth.

For this project, RH Trucking Canada has partnered with the Canadian Trucking Alliance, which represents the majority of for-hire carriers in Canada. The seven provincial trucking associations (Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Ontario, Quebec and the Atlantic Provinces) also confirmed their support and commitment to the project. Engagement and consultation activities will be held across the country to ensure national representation of the industry.

The sectoral labor market information reports will be published and made available online throughout the project, which will end in the summer of 2021.

Quick facts

Trucks carry 90% of all consumer and food products in Canada, and the industry needs the skills of over 500,000 employees in a wide range of occupations.

There has been no sectoral labor market information validated by the industry in this sector since 2011.

This project follows a call for proposals launched in fall 2017 for PAIS, which will provide $ 55 million over three years.
