How are Canadians navigating the holiday season amidst economic challenges and evolving retail landscapes? In this episode of Young Money, I’m joined by Myles Gooding, PwC Canada's National Consumer Markets Leader, to explore the Canadian Holiday Outlook Survey's findings. 

Listen as we dive deep into the spending behaviors of different generations and examine how cutting-edge retail technologies like AI, AR, and the metaverse are revolutionizing the way we shop. Myles also offers a wealth of insights into the current trends shaping Canadian consumer habits, as well as why Canadians are increasingly focusing on travel, supporting local businesses, and making socially responsible decisions in their holiday shopping.
