fewer immigrants—about 3 per cent less—have been attracted to working as truck drivers, compared with the total labour force. This is likely because truck driving is not recognized as a skilled occupation.

Other occupations such as railway and motor transport labourers—which attract a significantly younger population—and heavy-duty equipment mechanics have significantly lower immigrant shares, at less
than 10 per cent.
