    First time hearing about it today, is the membership worth it for a single truck O/O? I'm also from Canada but it looks like there is Canadian members as well.

    I see they offer insurance, fuel discounts, courses/help pages.

    Just wondering if this is a good group to join, also considering the fact I'm a Canadian. Is there any better groups to join for my situation?

    Lifetime member here. They aren't perfect, but they're all we've got to keep the megas from steamrolling us.

    I am a life member, it works for me. Overall I think they're the only (albeit quiet) voice my operation has so I support them but don't agree with all their opinions. They do offer a lot of help and resources and they're helpful nice people if you ring themtoo.

    i was for a few years, and i was always a company driver. when i retired, i also retired from being a member.

    they can help you with many things as an o/o or company driver.

    check with your CPA if your membership is a tax deduction.
