Driving Back to Work Grant Program

Supports unemployed Albertans pursuing careers in the trucking industry.

Introduction

Unemployed Albertans have an opportunity to start careers as commercial truck drivers through the extension of the Driving Back to Work Grant Program (DBTW). Unemployed Albertans can access funding to take the Mandatory Entry Level Training (MELT) program to earn a Class 1 driver’s licence.

This grant will help to fill an expected shortage of commercial drivers, forecast to be more than 12% by 2023, putting the province’s supply chain at risk. This grant supports Alberta’s Recovery Plan.
