Default IS THERE A WAY INTO CANADA OR EVEN USA WITH A TRUCKING JOB STILL?

Hi all
Hoping to get some good advise here, is there a way to get a trucking job in Canada or even USA using this route now days to work and live over there, as reading there has been so many closures on routes in with TWP and PNP, so what ways are people doing it? if even still? Has to be with my family also , so need a GOOD company to work for not one of those who abuse the " foreign" driver types promising a wage but ends up lower or doesn't have the runs as promised. Does this exist or?
Thanks in advance
cheers

Not at the moment , PNP means you're someones bitch until PR is granted so the term "GOOD" must be taken in context .

Very tricky at the mo (for Canada - don't think it's even possible for the US), but explore other visa routes. You mention family, so do you have a partner/spouse? If so, what do they do, do they have a skilled job that is more likely to lead to a visa? Any family in Canada? Any interest in further education for you or your spouse so a study permit might be an option?

I check the jobsites most weeks and I havent seen any companies hiring foreign workers,however I did read a thread on here that H&R were going to start hiring foreign drivers again ,interviews were being done by skype.Are they a good company thats debatable.

The USA, won't work, there are no visas for jobs such as truck driving; US visas are either for jobs with degrees or low-skill seasonal work.
