Even those Loblaws don't get home every night.
Not wanting to be funny, but if you want to be home every night what makes you think that the second biggest country in the world would be a good place to be a truck driver?

Hi Paul the first thing you need to pick and area in canada you would like to live. Then look for trucking companies that are offering LMO's. If you pick Saskatoon there is one company that has 4 LMO's available right now and is looking for good drivers. I use to live in Doncaster what part of Doncaster are you from.

If in doubt, look in the Wiki - http://britishexpats.com/wiki/Labour...Opinion-Canada

Good luck.

If you look in the wiki section it will tell you all about LMO's, its what you need to get a job in Canada. I know bentley really well, use to live in Rosso
