Mental health suffers as Canadian workers struggle financially

April 1, 2023

Many workers in Canada are uncertain about their financial future.

While more than half say they will be comfortable (21 per cent) or somewhat comfortable (36 per cent) financially in the future, a large number of Canadians can’t say the same.

Specifically, 26 per cent are unsure while 12 per cent say they will struggle at times. Some even believe they will be in a very difficult financial situation (five per cent), according to a TELUS Health survey.

These views about workers’ finances affect their mental health and financial wellbeing: the worse their situation is, the lower their mental health score.
