This statistic shows the perspectives on establishing a 30-hour working week according to adults in Canada as of April 2018, broken down by region. The findings show that the region of Ontario had the lowest share of respondents who were against establishing a 30-hour working week, with just 26 percent saying that they thought this would be a bad idea compared to 49 percent who would be in favor of the change. Conversely, Saskatchewan was the only region in which more Canadians reported being against a standard 30-hour working week than those who felt the change would be a good idea.
