Enjoy life on the open road! Transportation jobs give you the freedom to be your own boss.
Drive a truck or bus for public transportation, construction sites, or to transport materials. Transportation and trucking positions require specific vehicle licenses and driving experience. You will need to take a drivers test in Canada when you arrive, regardless of the type of license you currently have.
As a driver, you will need to be very safe and focused, as these positions often require long shifts or overnight work. You'll also want to consider whether you'd like to stay close to home, or enjoy the open road of long distance trips.
