Half of Canadians check their work emails while on vacation January 29, 2019 A new study shows half of Canadians say they check their office emails while travelling on vacation. Of those, 24% say they do so at least once, if not several times, each day. The results were gathered in a survey of Canadian travellers by Allianz Global Assistance Canada, which asked Canadians about their travel habits. The Ipsos survey also revealed that men are the most likely to check their work emails, with 54% responding affirmatively versus 44% of women. However, the greatest differences were associated with age. Some 72% of Millennials say they check their work emails while on vacation, compared with 42% of GenXers and 32% of Baby Boomers.
