What is the ‘Canadians Living Pay Cheque to Pay Cheque’ Survey?

The Association’s NPW Employee Research Survey examines trends in savings, spending, debt and retirement planning. The survey has become a key economic indicator of the financial health of working Canadians, and critical source of information in the financial literacy debate.













How is the Survey Conducted?

A total of 5,074 employees from across Canada, and from a wide range of industry sectors, responded to an online research survey between Friday, June 22nd, 2018 and Wednesday, August 1st, 2018, using a convenience sampling methodology. The survey was developed by the Canadian Payroll Association and conducted by Framework Partners. The survey is consistent with a margin of error of plus or minus 1.38% 19 times out of 20, but as a non-probabilistic methodology was used, a definitive margin of error cannot be expressed.
