    StatsCan study blames demographics on driver shortage - By Adam Ledlow, trucknews.com
    TORONTO, Ont. - The driver shortage in Canada may become increasingly severe over the next few years according to a 2004 study by Statistics Canada.

    The study, titled 'On the Road Again' featured on the online version of 'Perspectives on Labour and Income,' said for the first time in 2004 truckers aged 55 and over outnumbered those under 30, indicating that the occupation may be hit by a large number of retirements in the coming years. Drivers 55 or older also make up 18 per cent of the 271,000 people who worked as truckers in 2004, compared with 13 per cent for workers in general.
