Canadians need a break. Canada has the lowest average number of vacation days of any country, except China, surveyed by consulting firm Mercer Human Resources.

The survey used Ontario as the standard for Canada and found Ontarians get about 20 days off on average — 10 vacation days and 10 holidays.

Finland tops the charts with Finnish workers getting 44 days off each year (30 vacation days plus 14 holidays), according to the 2007 survey.
