COVID-19 disrupted the job market globally in 2020, and we are still facing the aftershock in 2022. Millions of people lost their jobs and others rapidly adjusted to working from home.

However, there is a subset of individuals that willingly resigned during the pandemic or are at least considering it. 

Keeping this in mind, Caddle asked their Daily Survey Panel what their thoughts are on the great resignation.

Why are Canadians Quitting Their Jobs?

Caddle discovered that the top three reasons for those Canadians who have resigned were “Stress/burnout” (14%), “Toxic work culture” (12%) and “No longer wanting to work for manager or company” (10%).
