Canada's Millennials Are More Likely To Quit A Job If They Can't ...

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced tons of people into having work-from-home jobs in Canada, and it seems like plenty of Canadians don't want to return to the office.

According to a recent poll by Angus Reid, 44% of Canadians surveyed who prefer to work from home say they would consider looking for a new job if they're told they have to go back to the office.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, surveyed Canadians between the ages of 18-34 were the most likely to say they'd likely quit or start looking for a job straight away if they had to leave the comforts of working from the couch.

Angus Reid found 22% of respondents aged 18-34 said they'd likely quit if they had to go back to an office, slightly higher than 18% of people aged 35-54 and 15% of people aged 55 and over.

Despite that, however, 40% of people aged 18-34 said they'd just roll with the punches and return to the office — about the same percentage as the other age ranges, who were more likely to be unsure about what they'd do.

In a previous study by the Business Development Bank of Canada, the majority of Canadian workers said they wanted to keep working from home, largely due to the flexibility offered.
