Vacation Deprivation Continues but Canadians Still Value Vacations in Today’s Economy, Expedia.ca Survey Finds

-- Two in five working Canadians feel they need more vacation time --

TORONTO, ON – May 13, 2009 - Today, Expedia.ca announced the results of its seventh annual Vacation DeprivationTM survey conducted by Harris/Decima revealing that almost one quarter (24 per cent) of employed Canadians report not taking all of their vacation days. Despite receiving an average of 18.7 vacation days, this year Canadians will give back an average of 2.03 days of unused vacation time to their employers. This translates into 34 million untaken days in Canada overall and about $6.03 billion (CDN) in wages handed back to employers.

Vacation Deprivation™ Condition Rises in Canada Leading to Vacation Envy, Expedia.ca Survey Reveals

Two in five working Canadians have experienced vacation envy; nearly 1 million Canadians booked a vacation as a result

TORONTO, ON – May 14, 2008 – The sixth annual Expedia.ca™ Vacation Deprivation™ survey by Ipsos-Reid reveals that more than one quarter (29 per cent) of Canadians are not taking all of their vacation time (up from 21 per cent last year) and 33 per cent of Canadians identify themselves as being vacation deprived (up from 31 per cent 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.

Fifth annual Expedia.ca Vacation Deprivation survey reveals improving “condition” over last five years

-- One in three Canadians still suffer from vacation deprivation --

TORONTO, ON – May 18, 2007 – Five years of championing for Canadians' vacationing rights is starting to pay off! The fifth annual Expedia.ca™/Ipsos-Reid Vacation Deprivation survey revealed that fewer Canadians are giving back days now compared to 2003 (33 per cent in 2003 vs. 21 per cent in 2007). However, there is room for improvement as Canadians still left two vacation days on the table in the past year, totalling 32 million untaken days and a staggering $5.4 billion (CDN) in wages handed back to employers. As well, 67 per cent of employed Canadians feel more, or just as, vacation-deprived as they did five years ago.
