It appears Canadians didn’t let economic uncertainty and concerns about another recession dampen their summer plans.
About one-third admit they’re carrying more debt than they did in May.
The Ipsos-Reid poll also found 22% exceeded their summer spending budget, and about 32% didn’t have a budget to start with.
33% say they spent more on summer activities this time around, despite warnings from government and financial experts about mounting personal debt levels.
On averages, Canadians spent roughly $700 on vacations and day trips, $770 on food, drink and entertainment and $1,422 on home renovations and improvements.
