WINNPEG, Man., — Manitoba’s Department of Transportation has teamed up with the province’s trucking industry to educate commercial transport operators about the regulations governing the industry.
The Commercial Operator Regulatory Education (CORE) program will provide truckers and fleet managers exactly what they need to know to operate safely and legally in Manitoba. It covers both provincial and federal government regulations.
Areas of interest include legislation such as the provincial Highway Traffic Act, the federal Motor Vehicle Transport Act and the National Safety Code.
“We’re very proud that our partnership has developed the first transportation education program of this kind in Canada,” says Manitoba’s Minister of Transportation and Government Services, Steve Ashton.
The program will be available in a print and electronic version. Visit www.gov.mb.ca/hwy/core/introduction.html for more information.
