When some people plan for a vacation, many may have a look over their bucket list for a possible exotic location.
But for others, it’s all about staying “local.”
A new Ipsos Reid poll done for Historica Canada finds 68% of Canadians agreed this country has something for everyone, “so why go anywhere else?”
For those planning to stay on this side of the border, Ontario and Quebec are the top destinations.
British Columbia is considered to be a “dream destination” for most Canadians.
The poll also finds the average Canadian has lived in or visited five other countries, 15% of Canadians say they’ve never left, 20% have been to one other country, 39% have been to 2-5 other countries, 9% have been to 6-9 countries, and 17% are certified globe-trotters, having been to at least ten other countries.
On the flip side, about one-third say Canada is a great place to live, but not that interesting when it comes to travel.
Just over 25% say they prefer to vacation in the US if exchange rates were not a factor.
