What is a Sector Council?

It is an exciting time for Manitoba’s trucking industry as we address the labour shortage facing our industry.

The Manitoba Trucking Association is the Manitoba Sector Council Program’s newest member under the Transportation and Distribution Sector.  The Sector Council Program supports organizations in key Manitoba sectors to develop and deliver workforce training for new and existing employees to support business growth and prosperity.

The MTA Human Resource Council will identify immediate, short- and long-term skills and labour gaps in our industry and develop strategies to fill those gaps.  Through industry outreach, working with other sector councils and various organizations, the sector council will inform Manitobans, including youth, Indigenous people, newcomers and those with disabilities about jobs and careers in our industry.  Furthermore, a sector council will also develop workforce training resources to bridge gaps between industry needs and recent graduates and ensure those currently in industry have the skills needed to be successful.

The sector council is funded by The Government of Canada and The Manitoba Government.
