Transport Minister of Transport Omar Alghabra, on behalf of Natural Resources Canada (NRCAN), today announced two new calls for proposals and availability of funding for trucking fleets through the new Green Freight Program and the Zero-Emission Vehicle (ZEV) Awareness Initiative, with the aim of encouraging fleets to increase uptake in emissions reductions technologies while further reducing costs and their carbon footprint.
Nearly three in four Canadians (73%) support or would accept the federal government taking action to stop Driver Inc. – a growing labour misclassification scheme in the trucking industry, which forces or manipulates employees into filing as independent contractors so that the companies can avoid providing important labour rights and entitlements under the Canada Labour Code.
The Canadian trucking industry is being challenged to pay it forward by organizing company food drives in the lead-up to Christmas. The Canadian Trucking Alliance (CTA) and Trucks For Change (T4C) are urging trucking and related companies to collect and deliver non-perishable food to local food banks to help Canadians who are experiencing food insecurity.
