According to the Canadian Payroll Association, approximately 44% of working adults in the country indicated that a delay in their paycheque or the loss of income for one pay period would create a challenge in paying bills and staying current on all debt payments.
At the same time, more Canadians than ever are reporting they feel they are overwhelmed with their level of debt, and they do not see a way to decrease their debt load in the foreseeable future.
These two factors create a significant challenge for working Canadians. Those with no employment or reduced working hours have additional concerns and challenges in managing debt and avoiding bankruptcy, foreclosures, and repossessions.
