St. Jérôme, June 21, 2011 - "Like stones in an Inukshuk, each person in an organization is important. Knowing that they are part of an industry, our people support one another. We are united by a common goal and together we form an entity that is greater than the sum of its parts.
On special occasions, the Canadian Trucking Human Resources Council (CTHRC) recognizes these people and road transportation industry organizations that wholeheartedly provide support for the development and improvement of human resources practices. This award is given to those individuals who demonstrate leadership and an understanding of our interdependence. On behalf of the industry, we would like to say thank you!" − CTHRC citation

The two vocational training centres graduate more than 800 students per year from across Quebec.
The Truck Driver Training Program takes the transportation industry’s efficiency, skill and safety requirements into account. Future truck drivers receive a high level of professional training that is designed to meet the industry’s modern day requirements.
The training centres’ Business Services divisions also provide quality services tailored to the needs of carriers with highly skilled employees. Industry requirements are taken into account in the training programs, and various industry partners participate in orientation sessions and training programs.
The two training centres work with various trucking industry players, including Camo route, the Association sectorielle transport entreposage (ASTE) and the Association du Camionnage du Québec (ACQ), in their professional activities. CFTR representatives have worked with the CTHRC over the years on various initiatives, such as the Truck Driver Careers Committee and consultations with colleges in Western Canada.
Every year, representatives of the Canadian Trucking Human Resources Council (CTHRC) travel across Canada and give out a Recognition of Champions distinction to individuals and organizations that promote appropriate human resources practices, provide valuable training and support the industry in numerous ways.
The CFTR and the CFTC are honoured to accept this distinction and will continue to mobilize their human resources to meet the industry’s requirements. Bernard Boulé and Eddy Vallières fully agree with the CTHRC statement that “We are united by a common goal and together we form an entity that is greater than the sum of its parts!”CTHRC Web site: www.cthrc.com/en/content/hr-champions
