The best resources for finding truck jobs in Canada

Canada is a big place, and even though it's got a population of just under 32 million people, it's one of the largest land masses on the planet taking up 3,854,085 square miles. As you may not know, the vast majority of the Canadian population lives within 150 miles of the United States border due to the fact that the further north you go, the more extreme the cold becomes in winter.

While you may think that that would drastically reduce the demand for long and short haul truck driver, it's simply not the case. The distance from the extreme east of Canada to the extreme west is just under 3,500 miles - that's a lot of road to cover!

Right now Canada provides one of the best opportunities for long haul drivers, with a huge amount of vacancies becoming available recently after a minor slowdown due to the global recession. If you're not a resident of Canada, you'll first need to get yourself a work permit to entitle you to enter the country and start work. The easiest way to do this is to pre-arrange a job with an established Canadian company, and then apply through the Canadian government. The process itself can be quite lengthy, so be prepared to have plenty of patience.
