One in two Canadians plans to save for holidays


THEY SAY TALK IS CHEAP. The holidays, however, can be expensive. Just over half (53%) of the 1,007 Canadians recently surveyed by Nielsen on


behalf of CPA Canada said they intended to save money specifically for the holidays. Almost four in 10 said they always or usually save for the most wonder- ful time of the year. A majority of respondents (almost 60%) said they plan to do some of their holiday shopping online this year. One-third of those surveyed agreed that managing spending during the holidays was stressful. See cpacanada.ca/holidayspending for a summary of the full survey.
