Hi and welcome to BE,
If you dont mind where you live Yanke are recruiting in Saskatchewn and i believe Transx in Winnipeg also, give them a try there on the web, also Yanke had adverts in the national press last week so maybe if you give them a call you could probably get an interview in the next week or so with them as they are in the UK now recruiting, I have an interview on Thursday with them. You need to speak to Jennifer Webb or Sara snow but they are in the uk but i guess they could give you a number to ring them here.
Give it try nothing to lose i guess.
All the best,
LOAFY...

Just wanted to say welcome to the BE forum.

Apparently Canada is crying out for truck drivers, so they say, so hope you have loads of luck on your journey ahead. Suppose it just depends where you want to settle or can you go where the jobs are!

Anyway, wish you all the best.

HiLucyann

You could also try the newspapers out there. This is the link for the Southern Alberta newspapers job pages - tonnes of trucking jobs there too.

Can you drive a truck?

If you breathe against a mirror, does it steam up?


If the answer to both these question is "yes", then send resumes to the usual suspects and wait for an offer.

If the answer to either is "no", then either you have no right to expect a job as a trucker, or you dont have much of a future ahead of you anyway

Notiain do you work for the department of stating the bleeding obvious ?
It appears not all people are as clued up on all things Canadian as you are.

Hey Paulie

You are relatively new to the forum and sometimes it is hard to interpret what people mean.

Some of us old timers on here have a strange sense of humour - probably due to the stress of moving over in my case.

Iaink was probably making a little bit of a joke that has gone straight over your head hun

Hi,as i live in Switzerland i was unable to attend any of these job interviews,just to bloody expensive. So i serched the web and found thousands of truck companies. Simply google :- Manitoba Transport Assoc. There you will find all of there memebers ( with websites)...scroll down the same page and you'll find all of the other Provinces transport Assoc. I sent out over 300 CV'S and had about 100 replies,these i whittled down to 10 or so.Then i checked out there base of opps,what kind of work, area and housing etc. Me i'm off to Kamloops BC next month. Hope this helps you and any others.
