With Victoria Day fast approaching, many Canadians may be wondering what they're going to be doing with their day off. Canadian Tire was especially interested and recently reported what 1,012 Canadian adults are planning.
While long weekends are often viewed as an extra day for play, the survey found that many people are going to be using the extra 24 hours for work and chore-related tasks. For example, 36 percent said they planned on gardening and 22 percent said they were going to tend to some home improvement tasks.
Duncan Reith, senior vice president for Canadian Tire, said it looks as though people are tending to their 'to do' tasks this year.
"It's clear that many Canadians want to get around to the jobs on their lists, but they feel they could use some extra time to do it," said Reith.
Overall, the most common thing people plan on doing this holiday is cleaning and organizing, as 38 percent indicated that was their primary aim. Perhaps they will be placing their belongings in Toronto storage, as extra room comes in handy when putting away things away for the winter, such as clothing, blankets and portable heaters.
