Reality Check 2006 was a one-day conference that focused on developing solutions for skilled labour
shortages in Western Canada’s Transportation, Logistics, and Supply Chain sectors. The event brought
together industry, government, associations, and academe from across western Canada, including trucking,
logistics providers, airlines, ports, railways, industry associations, distribution centres, and postsecondary
institutions. Delegates were provided with an opportunity to address the critical need for
skilled labour in the industry, and develop workable solutions to the human infrastructure deficit.
