KAP looks forward to working with province on agricultural trucking

March 26, 2019

Keystone Agricultural Producers acknowledges today’s announcement from the

province that the new training requirements for commercial truckers with Class 1

licenses will be delayed a year for farmers.

 

 

 

 

“The requirement is that truckers will have to take 121.5 hours of training by September 1, and the province recognizes this would impact the 2019 farming season,” said KAP president Bill Campbell. “However, I do stress that farmers are concerned about safety both on and off the farm, and we will work with the province over the coming year.”

 

KAP also acknowledges the province’s plan to consult with the agriculture industry, and is looking forward to developing training requirements that meet the unique needs of agricultural trucking.
