Default My list of Canadian Trucking Co's needing UK Drivers

I have enclosed a list of Canadian Trucking Co's who have advertised looking for UK drivers.

This list was sent to me via my past employment so thought you may like to see it.

(Guide to this list)

One would suggest you apply directly via their web site stating:

1. You are looking for work in Canada, however you reside in UK
2. Ask them directly to sponsor you if they think you are suitable to employment
3. Do just a 1 page (short) resume do not quote NI or other D of B just name / age / living (where) past exp, KIS (Keep it Simple)
4. If they reply and want to meet you, ask them to fly you over at their cost.

Hope this helps, more information on any Company, ask this forum, many read it and will know the pro's and con's of any pit-falls

OK the list which is valid in October 2007

It's a card needed to transport hazardous goods over the border into the USA.
Last I heard, you had to be a Canadian resident to get one.

Correct, you have to be granted a Canadian Resitentacy to gain one, thus this is why many UK drivers work within Canada till they apply to reside in Canada
