Working Canadians say their physical health is better than their financial health, according to a recent study.

The study, conducted by financial services firm Investors Group, found that 67 per cent of 2,170 working Canadians believe their financial well-being trails their physical well-being.

This imbalance may be the reason that more than half (58 per cent) said they plan to do some kind of paid work in retirement. This is in stark contrast to the 23 per cent of current retirees who are working.
