What do I need to know about hiring foreign professional drivers?
The shortage of qualified workers in Canada is growing on a daily basis. Whether it’s plumbers, electricians or Professional Drivers there are not enough bodies to fill all the openings. The younger generations are not currently rushing to start professional driving careers in comparable numbers to those retiring. Hiring professional foreign drivers with experience has become a solution for many employers to not only fill their empty seats but to also lower the average age of their drivers.
Professional Drivers are currently being recruited. It is a huge opportunity for these drivers to come to Canada and they are looking to stay in Canada as long-term drivers. We welcome international drivers to attend MTI for Canada-specific training (including steep-grade mountainous driving) and to obtain a BC license.
