7 out of 10 Canadians agree that taking vacations are important and 6 out of 10 actually do take them. 3 out of 10 have not taken a vacation in more than 2 years.

To really drive this home, only 54 per cent of Canadians took a vacation of some kind within the past year and 1 in 3 Canadians haven’t taken a vacation in more than TWO YEARS.
“According to the Index results, Canadians get 21 paid vacation days per year on average but are only taking 17. There could be many reasons for this but maybe some Canadians are still struggling with that work-life balance.” Source article
