About Us


Established in 1977, the Private Motor Truck Council of Canada (PMTC) is the only Canadian association dedicated to the interests of private fleet operators. The PMTC provides forums for fleet operators and industry stakeholders to exchange views and resolve issues together, and is at the forefront in representing your views to government, protecting your rights, and promoting your interests.

The PMTC is recognized as the voice of private trucking in Canada. We regularly field calls from trade press seeking PMTC opinions on subjects of interest to the trucking industry. PMTC President Mike Millian also has a monthly column in a leading industry magazine to promote the views of private carriers.

The PMTC provides tangible value in return for our modest membership fees. Members include fleet operators, equipment leasors, driver lessors and all types of suppliers to the private fleet community.

Many describe the PMTC as the best membership value in the Canadian transportation community.

    For immediate release   AGENDA ANNOUNCED FOR PMTC 2024 CONFERENCE AND AGM-REGISTRATION IS OPEN   Milton, ON: The Private Motor Truck Council of Canada has announced the full agenda and schedule for its 2024 Conference.  “Each year those who attend the PMTC Annual Conference tell us it is one of the best educational and networking values they receive in the transportation industry. We believe this year's line up of speakers continues to build on that reputation”, says PMTC President, Mike Millian.  “As a result of the growth of the conference and sell outs for both sponsors and attendees for the last 2 in person conferences, the PMTC is excited to be moving to a new venue this year, and at attendee's request, moving back to Niagara Falls, ON. This year's conference will be held at the Niagara Falls Convention Centre. The new venue will allow for improved flow in the sponsor's exhibit area as well as better sightlines and spacing while attending our best-in-class educational seminars. “ New this year, to encourage fleets to attend and stay in the exhibit area throughout the exhibition times, 3 cash draws of $300.00 each will be held in the exhibitors showcase on both days 1 and two. Only principle members in attendance at the time of the draws will be eligible to receive the cash awards”.   The conference will kick off the afternoon of June 18th with the Annual General Meeting for the membership.   On the evening of the 18th , the PMTC Young Leaders Group & TruckRight will host our annual Pre-Conference Cocktail Reception for conference sponsors, speakers, the PMTC Board of Directors, all registered conference attendees, as well as all PMTC Young Leaders Group members. In 2023 the pre-conference reception was attended by over 200 people.  The reception will be held in the Sponsors Exhibitors' Showcase area to provide more value to our conference partners and those who attend the pre-conference cocktail reception.    On June 19th, starting at 8 am, the educational portion of the conference will begin and continue into the 20th.  Mixed in with this will be the PMTC awards program as well as several networking opportunities.   A schedule of topics and events is listed below, and the full brochure with details, and registration is attached to this message, as well as up on the PMTC website at www.pmtc.ca. (Conference agenda and schedule subject to change with out notice)   This year's conference will take place at the Niagara Falls Convention Centre in Niagara Falls, On.   Registration is now open.
