Defines the present position of the Canadian lake shipping industry, the recent developments that have brought it to this position, and reviews the main economic and policy issues affecting it that should command present and future attention. The study is confined by its terms of reference to the Great Lakes dry cargo fleet only, so that no mention is made of the activities of the tanker fleets, which at December 21, 1974 consisted of 21 vessels of 77,242 gross tons, or 15% of the number and 5% of the gross tonnage of the Great Lakes fleet. Provides concise presentation of the principal current issues facing the lake shipping industry and it therefore contains neither a complete history nor a detailed analysis and forecast of traffic. Because of the comparatively small number of operators much information could be obtained only on a confidential basis and this has set limits to the degree of specificity which could be given to the different subjects.
