Associated Trades Division

The Associated Trades Division makes major contributions to the MTA’s programs, both actively and financially. The areas in which they provide financial assistance include our building and property as well as capital purchases for the good of the association, such as computers and other office equipment and furnishings. The Associated Trades Division also encourages good fellowship by sponsoring and organizing golf tournaments, curling bonspiels and other social events.

Some members of the Associated Trades Division are active members of the Professional Truck Driving Championships Committee. The Chair and Vice-Chair sit on the MTA Board of Directors. The Associated Trades Division Executive Committee meets monthly, except in summer, and an Annual General Meeting of all members is held in early spring.

Membership is open to any person, firm or corporation engaged in any business, trade or profession incidental to the truck transportation industry.

The objectives of the Associated Trades Division are:

  • To promote the objectives of the Manitoba Trucking Association in a tangible way.
  • To promote the support by the trucking industry of the legitimate business objectives of the members of the Associated Trades Division by encouraging the purchase of goods and services provided by the said members.
  • To foster a spirit of comradeship amongst its members in particular and the members of the Manitoba Trucking Association in general.
