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.

Men still out-earn women

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.
