Possible Mandatory Entry-Level Training for New Class 1 and Class 2 Drivers - Public Engagement

What was this engagement about?

The Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) held engagement sessions to gather input for possible mandatory entry-level training for new Class 1 and Class 2 drivers.

Why is the GNWT considering mandatory entry-level training?

Currently, the GNWT does not have regulated training requirements for Class 1 or 2 licences.

Mandatory training could result in safer, more highly skilled drivers working in the truck and bus industries.

How did people participate?

Four engagement sessions were held to gather feedback:

  • Inuvik
    January 10 at 7:00 p.m.
    Midnight Sun Complex (Sundog Room)

An online survey was also available until March 1, 2019 and comments were accepted by email.
