Can travel to Canada with conditional permanent resident green card?

The green card, combined with your valid passport, will allow you to enter Canada as a visitor, without needing a visa. I have no idea this is enough to be a truck driver or not.

I have conditional permanent green card,and I work like driver on a cargo-van.I can go to Canada if they give me loads for it?Thank you in advance!

Being a truck driver has nothing to do with your ability to go into Canada. Your greencard is all you need to go and come back since you'll be driving. They do not ask what you do for a living. Your passport is needed if you're flying. I've driven into Canada multiple times with just my Green card and drivers license and have never had any problem.

Thank you for your answer with details!

I don't know. Canada is just like the US, in that commercial truck drivers are regulated. They need special drivers licenses, etc. Being able to cross the border as a visitor in your own private vehicle for a non-working vacation/trip is almost certainly very different, legally and paperwork-wise, from crossing as a working commercial truck driver with the intent of working, as a commercial truck driver, doing a run in Canada. The first only requires, as has been said, a valid passport and green card. But I have no idea if additional documents are required to enter Canada as a working commercial truck driver.

I haven't the foggiest idea how any of that stuff works. You might want to check a commercial truck driver forum.
