US truck drivers who transport goods into Canada are frustrated by looming vaccine requirements, and causing concer that reciprocal mandates could further disrupt the supply chain. Starting Jan. 15, 2022, Canada will require all “essential service providers, including truck drivers,” to be fully vaccinated upon entry into the country. Similarly, all truck drivers will also be required to be fully vaccinated to enter the US one week later on Jan. 22. Industry associations are worried that drivers that are unable to work due to the vaccine mandate will move onto other jobs at a time when there is ongoing shortage of drivers in both countries.
