Can you clarify, do you already have a visa? As you won't get sponsored as a trucker without any work experience and from your previous threads you no longer have PR. The Wiki article on trucking will tell you but I think you need a minimum of 3 years class 1 experience?

If you want to move to Canada and don't have another visa already, I think you'll need to find another route.

Hi

the local transit system in vancouver is expanding,
and after bus drivers, amongst many other vacancies

I personally know a truck driver who came to MB on a temporary work permit. Things weren't working out for him so he went back to UK. After some time working there he came back to MB not with à TWP but a open work permit, I was surprised myself.
