ERASING DEBT A TOP PRIORITY IN CANADIAN SURVEY OF 2018 FINANCIAL GOALS

It seems many Canadians are keen to lighten their debt loads in 2018.

An annual opinion survey conducted by Angus Reid for CIBC says debt reduction or elimination is the top priority heading into the new year for 25 per cent of respondents.

Paying bills or just getting by are the top goals for about 15 per cent of respondents.

By comparison, 13 per cent say their top priority is growing wealth or investments.

Lower on the list of financial goals are saving for a vacation, retirement, or for a house or renovation.
