Feds fund CTHRC almost $2 million

CAMBRIDGE, Ont. (March 18, 2004) — Canadian Minister of Human Resources and Skills Development Joe Volpe announced almost $2 million in funding for the Canadian Trucking Human Resources Council yesterday.

As part of a $3.1 million program, the federal government is awarding $1,994,022 to CTHRC and another $1.1 million to the Automotive Manufacturing Sector Council.

The Infrastructure project of the Canadian Trucking Human Resources Council (CTHRC) will provide this sector council with stable operating funds allowing it to focus on responding to skills needs, representing the collective interest of industry partners, developing linkages with the educational system, and being results-based.

“Because people matter in the trucking industry, the Government of Canada is playing a vital role in ensuring that our industry has access to a qualified work force with the required skills to meet the needs of the stakeholders. The government’s continued support in the area of national occupational standards is helping us to raise the bar of professionalism in our industry,” said Linda Gauthier, Executive Director of the CTHRC, in a press release.

Established in 1993, the Canadian Trucking Human Resources Council (CTHRC) is an incorporated, not-for-profit organization with a Board of Directors representing stakeholders from the Canadian trucking industry.
