Child poverty dips
Child poverty in Canada continues to fall, but of 4.8 million Canadians living in low-income households, nearly a quarter are children.

Canadian men continue to out-earn their wives, but the gap is narrowing. Statistics Canada’s numbers show that in 50.7 per cent of couples, men made more than their wives, while in 32 per cent of cases it was relatively equal and in just 17.3 per cent of couples did women make more.
