Hi Neil,

Do you know of any trucking companies in Saskatchewan hiring foreign drivers? I hear you can get PR the quickest in Sask.

SK isn't quicker. Tbh, if speed is important, it would be best to look at another route over, as truckers don't qualify for Federal routes which are much speedier. Any other way in i.e. a spouse with a different job etc?

There used to be trucking companies all over Canada hiring foreign drivers but not any more after the government changed the regulations . The only company I know of hiring these days is Bison because they are one of the biggest trucking companies in Canada. I have heard that companies on Atlantic coast are hiring through an immigration program the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program or AIPP , couldn'tgive you names though, have a look at that. As the admin says PR is federal so wont be quicker in any other province
