We even got Marty’s approval today. Lots of fun!

We had a lot of fun again this year participating in the annual Touch a Truck fundraiser !

At this event, children and their families are invited to get behind the wheel and explore trucks of all kinds, including firetrucks, police cars, excavators, dump trucks and more. This fun-filled afternoon also includes a host of family activities, face painting and a bouncy castle.

All proceeds from this event benefit Neuroblastoma research in BC. Neuroblastoma is a deadly and aggressive childhood cancer that has affected 10 children in the Lower Vancouver Island area.

Keep on Trucking? Not if Canada Doesn’t Hire More Truckers

Posted by on Feb 23, 2013 in Albion News | Comments Off on Keep on Trucking? Not if Canada Doesn’t Hire More Truckers

By Ben Dummett

We’ve all heard about those truck-driving jobs in Fort McMurray (and Australia’s mining hinterlands) offering six-figure salaries and a chance to steer some of the world’s biggest moving machines.

But it turns out, big opportunity in the truck-driving trade may be closer at hand. Canada’s trucking industry may face a shortage of 25,000 truckers or more by 2020 because of an aging workforce and a lack of young people and immigrants taking the job, according to a new report by the Conference Board of Canada concludes.

“The findings reflect what the industry has been warning for years – that Canada is on the cusp of a serious shortage of truck driver capacity, which… could hamper the Canadian supply chain and drive up prices on store shelves,” the Canadian Trucking Alliance said in a release this week. The alliance commissioned the Conference Board study.

That probably doesn’t mean there will soon be high-paying posting for jobs on routes up and down the 401, but higher wages may be one of the results of the shortage. Truck drivers in Western Canada have enjoyed some of the greatest wage increases in the sector, benefiting from the explosive growth of the region’s energy and mining sectors. Many of the best-paid jobs are highly specialized and are drawing from a small labor pool.

The trucking industry moves 90% of all consumer products and food within Canada and 60% of trade with the U.S. The shortage of drivers stems in part from the sector’s struggles to attract young people – between the ages of 15 to 24 – to what’s been called the “for-hire” part of the industry. This segment offers trucking transportation services to other companies. But it can be a tough job because of the long hours, long-distance driving and unpredictable schedules.

Some solutions: Provincial and federal governments could adopt policies that make the profession more attractive to prospective job seekers, the conference board and trucking alliance argue. One step would be to recognize trucking jobs as a skilled trade for immigration purposes. And the trucking association said it wants governments to introduce “mandatory entry-level driver training” and upgrade license standards for the industry obtain a skilled occupation designation. Those moves could bolster the industry’s uneven reputation.
