LMI Interim Report

OTTAWA, ON (September 26, 2019) – Trucking HR Canada has released an interim labour market information report with the most up-to-date, and accurate workforce data currently available for the Canadian trucking and logistics industry.

Trucking HR Canada has partnered with The Conference Board of Canada and has produced a preliminary, interim report highlighting current occupational representation, vacancy rates, workforce demographics and more.

“We are working to ensure the industry as a whole and employers have accurate, relevant and timely labour market information”, says Angela Splinter, CEO of Trucking HR Canada. Interim findings show a high vacancy rate, and overall employment growth combined with low unemployment and an upward surge in wages. “All compelling evidence the industry faces a driver shortage.”

In addition to this report, Trucking HR Canada continues to seek input from employers through a comprehensive, national labour market information survey.
