This summer, Manulife Bank surveyed Canadian homeowners and renters to uncover money confessions about debt. The survey revealed that money issues have a considerable impact on Canadians’ relationships and mental health.

Key findings:

  • Half of Canadians in debt are stressed about their level of debt and worrying about debt keeps one in three up at night
  • 30% of married/common law couples in Canada confess to relationship issues caused by debt
  • 40% of Canadians with debt confess it’s negatively impacting their mental health
  • Of those who say they have a lot of debt, 85% feel it causes stress and 75% find it difficult to deal with unexpected financial changes

Debt shouldn’t impact relationships and mental health. Start talking about debt management today.
