How Much a Truck Driver earn In Canada
Bus Drivers are in great demand in various provinces across Canada to transport Children to and from schools.
Demand For School Bus Drivers is now so high that school districts across the country regularly have to announce school bus delays or cancellations due to a lack of personnel.
The demand is so high that often the replacement drivers against the regularly employed drivers are not available in many provinces.
As per estimates, as per current availability of drivers, next three years would witness high shortage of Bus Drivers in almost all provinces. All Job posting sites have rush of vacancies for drivers on their sites. After recent changes to NOC, Canada has allowed school districts and other employers to recruit qualified foreign nationals to drive buses in Canada.
