More than a third of Canadians surveyed say not having enough money actually keeps them awake at night, finds a poll by Leger for PC Financial.

More than half (54%) of the 1,578 people surveyed online believe that between $2,000 and six-months’ salary is an appropriate nest egg; but only 29% have this much in their personal savings, while 38% have less than $2,000.

  • sticking to a budget (46%);
  • getting and keeping finances in order (45%);
  • saving money for needs (44%);
  • talking to a spouse or partner about money (35%).
