The Evolving Expectations and Ambitions of Canadians Eligible to Retire

Gone are the days when Canadian workers retired immediately upon becoming eligible to do so. Today, Canada’s mature workers – defined as employees over the age of 50 – enjoy lives that are, on average, longer and healthier than those of the generations before them – and many choose to invest much of that added time in their careers.

According to the data from Second Wind: The Evolving Nature of Retirement, a recent survey commissioned by Ceridian and CARP – A New Vision of Aging for Canada, more than half (57%) of mature workers want to continue working in some capacity after they reach the traditional age of retirement (age 65).
