Trucking is one of the few sectors in the economy that is NOT suffering from unemployment. Recent statistics from the Canadian Trucking Alliance indicate a shortage of truck drivers across Canada, and especially throughout the province of Ontario. These kinds of statistics show promise for new truck drivers who are considering a transition into the sector. In short, the trucking industry needs drivers (especially young drivers), and because older drivers are deciding to retire, the need is ever increasing. Obviously, high-quality drivers are the ones in demand – they are the ones who possess the professional qualifications that employers are looking for today.
