Government of Canada announces $2.8 million for Trucking Human Resources Canada to help workers and employers in a changing economy

Posted on June 14, 2018 – 13:40  –

June 14, 2018  –   Gatineau, Quebec –  Employment and Social Development Canada –

E-commerce, modernized supply chains and innovative logistics processes are creating new opportunities in the trucking and logistics industry. We know it takes knowledge and information for workers, employers and post-secondary education institutions to take advantage of these opportunities and grow our economy.

That is why the Honourable Patty Hajdu, Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Labour, has announced funding of $2.8 million to Trucking HR Canada through the Government of Canada’s Sectoral Initiatives Program (SIP), to develop the sectoral labour market information needed to shape the industry for the future.

This project supports the SIP’s goal to address current and future skills shortages by supporting the development and distribution of sector-specific labour market information. The project will develop bilingual innovative tools to help employers to recruit and retain employees from untapped labour pools, such as women, Indigenous people, people with disabilities, visible minorities, veterans/transitioning military personnel and youth.

For this project, Trucking HR Canada has partnered with the Canadian Trucking Alliance, which represents the majority of for-hire carriers across Canada. The seven provincial trucking associations (Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Ontario, Quebec and the Atlantic provinces) have also confirmed their support and commitment to the project. Engagement and consultation activities will be held across the country to ensure a national representation of the industry.

Sectoral labour market information reports will be released and made available online throughout the course of the project, which ends in summer 2021.
Quotes

“Economies are changing around the world, and that presents opportunities that we need to seize in Canada. Workers, employers and post-secondary education institutions need knowledge and information in order to shape the future of the trucking and logistics industry, and this project by Trucking HR Canada will help them do just that.”
– The Honourable Patty Hajdu, Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Labour

“The trucking and logistics industry is rapidly changing. A strong economic outlook, low unemployment rates, workforce shortages and technological change are all impacting fleet operations across the country. This project will enable us to better quantify labour needs to inform the development of practical tools and resources that will support employers, as well as better connect job seekers to the numerous career opportunities the industry offers.”
– Angela Splinter, CEO, Trucking Human Resources Canada
Quick facts

Trucks move 90 percent of all consumer products and food items within Canada, and the industry requires the skills of over 500,000 employees in a wide range of occupations.

There has not been any industry-validated sectoral labour market information in this sector since 2011.

This project comes following a call for proposals in fall 2017 for the SIP, which will allocate $55 million over 3 years.

Carleton University Accessible Experiential Learning Project (CUAEL) Description

What is Experiential Learning

The Carleton University Accessible Experiential Learning (CUAEL) project is a new experiential learning project funded by the Ontario Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development (MAESD). Working collaboratively with the Paul Menton Centre for Students with Disabilities and the Career Services Office, the CUAEL project aims to place 300 students with disabilities in employment opportunities and provide them with hands-on quality experiences while they obtain their post-secondary degree at Carleton University.

At Carleton, students with disabilities are now graduating at a rate on par with the general population. Carleton is well-placed to implement the CUAEL model program in employment preparation, with the objective of moving the employment success rate of students with disabilities towards par with the general population.

The CUAEL project will allow Carleton to build capacity with its employer partners, demonstrating the potential of students with disabilities and creating ongoing employer relationships that will continue after the Career Ready Fund period is complete.

The CUAEL Project Objectives and Scope (2018-2019)

We believe that by fostering meaningful connections and greater awareness of the benefits of hiring students with disabilities, these CUAEL goals will be met with great success!

CUAEL Funded Employment Placement Periods

In addition to the above, co-op and internship opportunities can be explored for your company’s involvement throughout the year.

Contact us now to get involved in this groundbreaking project and become an employer champion, by discovering and investing in the vast potential of our students!
