OTTAWA, Ont. — Canadian provinces and territories have much in common when it comes to commercial licensing, according to a study recently released by the CTHRC.
The study, entitled Commercial Driver Licensing Requirements finds that while differences exist in the details, Canada’s 13 provinces and territories have achieved considerable uniformity in their truck licensing.
The result is mobility for the workforce and national access to drivers for employers, says the CTHRC.
Commissioned by the Canadian Trucking Human Resources Council, the study examines all aspects of truck driver qualification for each jurisdiction. The study tabulates and compares experience and training, knowledge and practical testing, age, classifications, medical standards and vehicle designations so the similarities and differences between Canadian provinces and territories are apparent.
Copies of the study can be obtained by contacting the CTHRC office at 613-244-4800 or by visiting www.cthrc.com
