Most Canadians enjoy retirement

Retirees still wish they’d saved more, started earlier


Almost 60 per cent of Canadians polled say they’re living their dream retirement, according to a TD Waterhouse survey released today.

The 2011 “Canadians and Retirement” report also found that roughly the same percentage wished that they saved more money before retiring.

The biggest piece of advice that retirees have to give the younger generation is to take care of one’s health, as money is only one factor in a happy retirement.

But the biggest money advice retirees want to give you – and you’ve heard it before – is: pay off your debt, save more and start earlier.
