CALGARY – Most provinces and territories across Canada are well into their reopening plans as vaccination rates rise.

With more events making a return and places open to visitors, what do Canadians have on their summer to-do lists?

A survey from Bromwich+Smith found that Canadians are most excited about being able to eat at restaurants again.

Nearly half of people surveyed, 46 per cent, said they plan to dine out a lot this summer and maybe enjoying a few drinks on a patio.

Next on the list of to-dos was booking some kind of experience to share with friends or family, like going to a cabin or cottage, camping, or white water rafting.

Forty per cent of people polled said they’d be doing activities like those this summer.

One in five polled say they plan to “party like it’s 1999”. Another 18 per cent of people are looking forward to shopping.

And 15 per cent of people said they’re wasting no time in booking their next vacation.

On the other side of the spectrum, 17 per cent of Canadians plan on saving their coins and staying home.

About a quarter say they don’t plan on doing anything differently.
