Join us for our annual Fall Awards as we celebrate Manitoba’s trucking industry!


Another year in a global pandemic is behind us.  It has been another challenging year, so let’s take some time to celebrate our achievements as an industry.   Join us November 19 for the MTA 2021 Awards Gala. This event honours the best of Manitoba’s trucking industry, from drivers to managers and owners.
