Advancing Women in the Trucking Industry

Understanding today’s challenges, removing tomorrow’s barriers


Women in Trucking Toolkit


Advancing Women in the Trucking Industry is a federally funded initiative through the Status of Women. Led by the THRSC Atlantic this initiative allowed the trucking industry in Atlantic Canada to research existing barriers to employment, advancement, and more importantly, strategies to support industry efforts to increase the number of women considering careers in the trucking industry. This toolkit was developed to provide information, stories and samples to help employers work towards the goal of increasing representation and advancing women in the trucking industry.
