Vacation Deprived?

It’s time to go away!

The sixth annual Expedia.ca Vacation Deprivation™ survey by Ipsos-Reid revealed that more than one quarter (29%) of Canadians are not taking all of their vacation time (up from 21% last year) and 33% of Canadians identify themselves as being vacation deprived (up from 31% last year). Canadians give back an average of 2.43 days (up from 2.06 last year) of unused vacation time to their employers. This translates into nearly 41 million untaken days in Canada overall and a staggering $6.3 billion (CDN) in wages handed back to employers.
