Undertaking a new career in trucking may require additional training. If you require financial assistance to consider making the move there are several options available:
- Government Student Loans – If the training that you are taking is recognized and offered by an accredited institution, you may be eligible for government student loans. To see if you may qualify, visit the Government of Canada's www.CanLearn.ca
- Apprenticeship – Many companies within certain functional areas, like maintenance and driving, offer apprenticeships. It's a good idea to speak to carriers within your region to learn what they offer.
- Industry Scholarships – Some transportation companies also offer scholarships to those who qualify. Check out www.StudentAwards.ca to find one in your area.
