Kenney said. “Lets all find some way to acknowledge
and thank the truck drivers without whom we could not
continue to function.”
The AMTA, other provincial associations and the
Canadian Trucking Alliance have been active with various
#thankatrucker campaigns on social media and other events.
In Alberta, a number of school children wrote letters to
industry celebrating drivers for their work on the frontlines.
“I’m very thankful to you for being brave. You are tak-ing
good care of all citizens,” wrote one Grade 2 student
from Calgary. “First, by putting food on the shelves. Second,
you travel long distances so we can have food in the stores.
Thanks to your work, people all over the city have access to
all the nutrients they need to stay healthy and well.” n

AMTA and STA enter
The Alberta Motor Transport Association (AMTA) and
Saskatchewan Trucking Association (STA) have entered
into a first-of-its-kind collaborative partnership, to
harmonize training between the two provinces.
“The AMTA values our close working relationship
with commercial transportation associations across
Canada,” said Chris Nash, AMTA president. “We are
pleased we were able to work with the STA on this
collaboration to improve Certificate of Recognition
(COR) training between our two provinces.”
Under the new agreement, the AMTA is customizing
courses for delivery to Saskatchewan’s commercial
transportation industry. With STA in the lead, the
AMTA has adapted instructional materials and
assessments to align with Saskatchewan’s unique
legislative needs and practices, while maintaining
the integrity of the training and intended objectives
“This is a significant step in standardizing best
practices through harmonized training,” said Erik
Sherman, AMTA director of Injury Reduction,
Training and COR at the AMTA. “Carriers operating
interprovincially will directly benefit from a consistent
approach to training, while our associations set an
example of inter-jurisdictional cooperation in support
of safer workplaces.”
