Ottawa, ON — Too many demands and hours were the most common source of workplace stress in 2000 for one-third of working Canadians, according to a recent study by Statistics Canada.

About 16% claimed poor interpersonal relations at work caused them stress, while roughly 14% said job security was the main cause of their workplace stress.

What triggered stress among workers varied widely depending on their occupation and hours, according to the study. For example, managers and professionals were more likely than blue-collar workers to cite stress from too many demands and hours.
