In our society of overconsumption, when something breaks, it often gets replaced by a new one. Why don’t we repair more?
Chances are that in the last two years, you've purchased an appliance or an electronic device. According to our study, 91% of Canadians have done so. In that same time frame, you're also likely to have had an appliance or electronic break - as is the case for 63% of our survey respondents. However, only 19% of these people had it repaired. There’s clearly a problem here.
