Case study on Canadian driver shortage situation published

A case study on the driver shortage situation in Canada has been published by the ProfDRV project. The paper provides an overview of the Canadian trucking industry and the issues that have and continue to impact the shortage of qualified drivers.  It provides a historical look at the analysis of the industry going back to 1991 when the Government of Canada looked at the human resource challenges and opportunities of the industry. This study led to the establishment of the Canadian Trucking Human Resources Council in 1994.  The paper also describes the work of the Council from the research conducted and the products and services develop to address the human resource challenges.
The paper has been prepared by the Canadian Trucking Human Resources Council in the context of WP 2 "VET schemes for professional drivers". Please access the paper here.
