Ontario Trucking Association welcomes government decision to provide Provincial Nomination to immigrant truckers
The Ontario Trucking Association (OTA) has welcomed the decision by the Government of Ontario in which the truckers have been made a part of the Immigration Nominee Program by the Ontario government. Some of the other provinces had provisions to nominate the truckers for Permanent Residency of Canada to the Federal Government. Hence, now the trucking companies in Ontario would be able to hire truckers from outside Canada. Prospective truck drivers will have to go through Ontario’s mandatory entry-level training program and will require further in-house training by their employer. The change gives Ontario trucking companies the same access to foreign labour sources currently provided to the agriculture and construction industries. This change has been brought by the budget of Ontario.

Ontario might cancel the Corporate Stream
The Ontario government is planning on cancelling the Corporate Stream immigration program and shift its focus to attract more tech talent into the province. Entrepreneur and Corporate Stream are two investment programs in Ontario. The government plans to retain the Entrepreneur program, and public consultation had kicked off in seeking other better ways.
