Manitoba updated guidelines for Truck Drivers and their Employers
On October 31, Manitoba released an update of guidelines for Employers and Long-Haul Truck Drivers under the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP). Manitoba authorities stated that the new regulation is aimed at ensuring Manitoba’s Trucking Industry can recruit qualified international truck drivers. All employers must obtain a positive LMIA in order to be permitted to recruit international truck drivers under the Temporary Foreign Workers Program. The MPNP may consider requests from provincial trucking companies to hire a specific number of truck drivers directly through the MPNP if those employers can prove they are able to meet all the requirements indicated in the updated Guidelines.
