Owner Operator Truck Driver Jobs at Celadon Canada

Celadon Canada has truck driving jobs available for owner operators. If you have an AZ class 1 license we want to talk to you. If you are not already an owner operator you may be able to participate in our lease purchase program to become one.


At Celadon, our Owner Operators play a key role in our success. You will enjoy the benefits of partnering with a leading international carrier that offers stability, steady miles with an 800-1,000 mile average length of haul, weekly pay, driver-friendly freight and nearly routine freight lanes.


We do not promise high rates of pay only to take it away in other costs charged- back to the Owner. At Celadon, your success is our success! Solos and Teams welcomed.

7-10 days out is all that is required, however for the best productivity results 10-14 days — the choice is yours.
