Default Trucking in Quebec

i have a question, i saw somewhere in this forum that i canot apply for PR in Quebec as a truck driver.

now, there is a company that is always looking for foreign drivers , spoke with the french lad over the phone, he told me that one of the essential requierements is to apply for PR within a year, becouse they dont want and not gonna renew my work permit,
now how can it be?

secondly, there is an advert for company is sask that have lmia's any body heard about them? it seemes odd to me that the recruiter that sopoused to be in sask has an alberta phone number,

The answer to your last paragraph is, they are probably a large company with terminals across Canada and although they are looking for drivers in SK, they only recruit from Head Office which is in AB.

No, they only have an add on saskjobs, their name is zora-holdings, i never heard of them, maybe scam or or self nominated "agent" who wants money for nothing? This is the reason i asked here,maybe someone heard of them?

Cant find anything thats a company profile for them, One name comes up attached to Zora is Raj Gill. My money is on it being an agency but i'll keep looking.

Well, looking at the name, I would personally give them a wide berth anyway.

Don't become so desperate to move out here that you'll take the first job you find with an LMIA, it could be the worst decision you ever make.
Have you got family ?
If the answer is yes, you'd be wise to be very skeptical.

I couldn't find anything on that company name so no surprise its an agency, Most use to charge around $10,000.
