Default Long-haul truck driver in Alberta, mountain experience

My husband had been working in Alberta, Canada, for the past 2 years as a long-haul truck driver, most of the time driving from Edmonton to Whitehorse in the Northwest Territories.
His company wants to renew his contact but has been having problems in getting the LMIA approved. Is there another company hiring with an LMIA approved?

Thank you.

I don't know of any in AB you could try Watt & Stewart, Claresholm.
H&R, TransX.
There were a few in MB & NS but thin on the ground everywhere.
Have you not applied for PR yet ?

Thank you for your help. We will look at these options.
We are stuck with the PNP application waiting for that to be approved to be able to apply for PR.
These have been tough times with so many changes...
Thank you.

If you call anybody make sure you fully explain your circumstances, chances are you'll get a jump ahead of anybody who's still in their own country waiting for LMIA's, you are already here, with the licence and experience.
Both H&R & TransX were advertising a few weeks ago for people that were already here and exactly in your predicament.
Good luck.

Last time i spoke to anyone there regarding LMIAs as about a month or so ago, just not sure if they have used them all up yet.
Most are just using them for people already here.
