According to a recent survey from Deloitte and the Manufacturing Institute, the manufacturing industry in the U.S. is short by approximately 600,000 skilled workers, a surprising finding given the high rate of unemployment in the country. While waiting for this shortage to be filled by employment and training initiatives within the U.S., a trend is developing where manufacturing companies are outsourcing from Canada.

Given the natural resources and industrial landscape of their northern neighbor, Canada holds a wealth of skilled workers from many concentrations including lumber, oil, natural gas, and construction industries. Position descriptions include; machinists, heavy machinery operators, craft laborers, distributors, and a wide variety of technical experts – exactly the positions that need filling in the U.S..

Great Canadian Van Lines has seen more of a preparedness to relocate from the skilled labor force in Western Canada, who has been on their toes with respect to employment uncertainty in their own country. The availability of work in the U.S. in the manufacturing sector makes across the border relocation a viable alternative.

Great Canadian Van Lines continues to do everything it can to ease the relocation process for both the employee and prospective employer in the U.S. by referring both parties to the mandatory documentation, and supplying them with the materials needed to make the move as pleasant as possible.”

ABOUT Great Canadian Van Lines

Great Canadian Van Lines was incorporated in Alberta in 1990, and the Head Office of the company was relocated to the Vancouver area in 1992. From its founding day, Great Canadian saw a consumer demand for change in the industry and focused on three issues:

1) Better Value – a simpler Tariff and better rates and service for long distance moves.
2) Transit Times – more direct routes, and shorter transit times.
3) Reduction in Claim Ratios – Valuation Premium. Drivers are 100% responsible for any damage they cause, and are paid the Valuation Premium when there is no damage.

Better Value, Transit Times and Low Claim Ratios are what differentiates Great Canadian Van Lines from other national Canadian van lines. We developed our business on these principles in the late 1980s and continue to operate our business with them today.
