Big parties with family, hopping on a plane to a new destination and sitting down at a restaurant for a fancy meal with a group of friends are the top three things that Canadians are looking forward to doing once this crisis is behind us and restrictions are lifted, a new survey shows.

“The Scotiabank survey highlights Canadians’ eagerness to spend on what they’ve missed out on for more than a year – travel, restaurant dining, attending social events - but we’re encouraged that so many plan on carrying the strong money habits they’ve developed in the future," said D’Arcy McDonald, SVP, Deposits, Investments, & Payments at Scotiabank.
