It seems Canadians are more concerned with debt reduction these days than retirement planning.
A new poll conducted by Harris/Decima for C-I-B-C found 17 per cent of the two-thousand people surveyed chose debt reduction as their main financial priority in 2013.
It’s the third year in a row that debt reduction has topped the list.
In second place was building savings, as chosen by 10 per cent of respondents — followed by managing day-to-day spending.
Retirement planning came in fourth.
