According to the Labour Force Survey study conducted by Statistics Canada, over 4.1 million Canadians indicated that they experienced high or very high levels of work-related stress, which represents 21.2% of all employed people in Canada. The study surveyed workers aged 15-69 in April of 2023. Based on this sample, the most common causes of work-related stress included a heavy workload (23.7%), and balancing work and personal life (15.7%). Individuals identifying as women were more likely than those identifying as men to experience high or very high levels of work-related stress. The industries with the greatest prevalence of work-related stress included health care and social assistance.
Based on age group, work-related stress was more prevalent among core-aged workers, those aged 25 to 54. In this group, those in management positions and in occupations requiring bachelor’s degrees or above were more likely to be stressed. According to the study, 7.5% of employees have taken time off for stress or mental health reasons, with the average amount of days lost being 2.4 days. To learn more about the study, click here.
