Immigrate to Canada as a Truck Driver

Canada is in growing need of truck drivers. With a small population spread over the second-largest country in the world, the country is looking towards immigrants to solve this employment issue. It has been announced that they hope to introduce over a million new workers into their economy within the next 3 years.

The average age of truck drivers in Canada is 48, meaning that an incoming younger population of potential residents have quite a long career-span ahead of them as the workforce continues to age. Qualified candidates will receive a temporary Canada work permit. After a period of transition, candidates can apply for Canadian permanent residence (Canada immigration) under provincial nomination programs (PNP).

Being a long-haul truck driver has plenty of perks including a salary of between $55, 000 and $70, 000 per year, as well as some bonus payments. The industry varies in terms of what you can do as a truck driver which also moves the pay scale up or down accordingly. For this reason, we recommend jobs that cover the longer routes cross-country which guarantee you a higher salary and more benefits. The schedule is fairly flexible with some trips taking place over several months or for just a week. You also have the opportunity to negotiate with your employer to determine how long you would like to work and how many days you will have off in a month. Being an owner operator is also a great consideration of making much higher earning, between $120,000 to $180,000 per year. Establish your own company is another option to extend your career further.

Driving can also be an interesting way of seeing the Canadian cityscapes and wilderness. Pass by wonders like the Rockies with its neighbouring forests and fjords as well as the major cities such as Toronto, Vancouver, Winnipeg and Montreal, all destinations that need resources delivered. There’s also a lot more social interaction than one might think. Take hold of opportunities to become a team driver where you interchange with other truckers around the country or even pair up with a spouse who can travel and drive around the scenic landscapes with you.

I strongly recommend this school. When I first came to this driving school, I always worried about whether I could learn it. Under the constant encouragement of Principal Yang and Rachel, I learned a lot of theoretical knowledge and driving skills of safe driving. At the same time, I also gained a lot of reliable experience Brothers also feel the care and care like family members. Principal Yang has millions of kilometers of truck driving experience without accidents and rich teaching practice. According to the situation of different students, he adopts an individual teaching method, which is easy to understand. Strongly recommend this again driving school.

Unforgettable time in life, here is not only a driving school, but also the starting point of dreams. Ben is very professional. While teaching driving skills, he will also explain the mechanical principles to the students, which is very important for those who want to become professional drivers in the future.
