Trucking HR Canada, along with a coalition of industry partners including the Canadian Trucking Alliance, are working together to address the growing labour shortage in the trucking sector.
Trucking HR Canada’s Career Expressway supports employers in the trucking and logistics sector in accessing, training, and developing a skilled workforce.
The program offers several streams of training grants and wage incentives to employers who are working to grow and strengthen their talent pool, and in turn contribute to a sustainable and competitive supply chain.
Through Career ExpressWay, industry employers could be eligible to access up to $10,000 in training grants and wage incentives for new driving and in-demand non-driving roles. The financial wage incentives will support employers with recruitment for other in- demand occupations.
Current streams include:
- Student work placement program;
- Youth employment incentives;
- Driver training and wage incentives to support economic recovery.
*THRC will be hosting an online webinar on Dec 7 to learn how the Career ExpressWay can help you fill critical roles. The webinar will include details on accessing both training grants and wage incentives.
The program is open to all Canadian trucking and logistics employers who are looking to hire for driving and non-driving positions. Qualified candidates must be either a Canadian citizen, Permanent Resident or granted Refugee Status.
Partners in our Wage Financial Incentive will be reimbursed up to 75% of the salary available to be paid to the employee, up to a maximum of $10,000 per qualified employee.
