Private motor truck council of Canada





PMTC is the only national association dedicated to the interests of the Private Trucking Community, and your best source of information on issues affecting fleet operations. Without the PMTC, private fleet managers could spend a great deal of their own time searching for the information they need to keep up to date with rapidly changing regulations that affect fleet operations.

Membership gives you the equivalent of an extra office – one that is a resource for transportation and labour questions, information, and issues that fleet managers must deal with. The PMTC helps you keep your fleet running smoothly and without incident.

Because our members are seldom in competition with one another they are often willing to share information or advice, and as a PMTC member you have access to the experience of those fleet managers. Our office is adept at finding other private fleets willing to share experience in areas in which you have questions.

PMTC ensures that its members have current information with respect to regulatory change and management practices. We do this through a communications program that includes a monthly newsletter, a magazine, an electronic bulletin service, our website, seminars dealing with current issues, and our annual conference. The annual conference is a major undertaking for the PMTC and provides first class educational opportunities, a chance to celebrate some of the good things in trucking, and the opportunity to exchange ideas with other fleet managers and industry suppliers. Members who attended our annual conferences universally praise the seminar content and the contacts they make, simply by investing some of their time.  PMTC publications keep you abreast of what you need to know to work successfully in the private trucking community.


  • The PMTC is well known for effectively educating government about the issues affecting private fleet operators, and working to maintain the right to private carriage.

  • We ensure your views are heard and represented with all levels of government.

  • Our strong relationship with the government ensures we are involved in consultations on rules and regulations that affect your business. This allows us to help shape the rules to the benefit of the industry and our members.

  • Membership in the PMTC is like having a consulting firm at your fingertips. By simply reaching out by phone or email to our office we can quickly get you an answer for any question you may have. If we don’t have the answer at our fingertips, we can get it quickly as a result of our strong relationship with governments and your fellow members.

  • We keep our members up to date on key industry information through our electronic communication service. Free access to educational presentations, benchmarking surveys, discounted services, and much more through the members only section of our website.

  • Job portal to help members find qualified candidates
