Description: And in another poll, along comes the sobering news that many Canadians are carrying mortgages into retirement. Roughly 25% of those between 55 and 80 seem to have some form of debt. A Toronto financial planner states “it suggests that a large percentage of the population either doesn’t think about retirement much or doesn’t think about it at all.” In other scary news for those heading towards retirement, roughly 25% of those between 20 and 64, and still in the workforce, were dipping into their retirement savings to help get through the present day.
