Income Inequality and Low Income in Canada: an International Perspective
This paper provides an overview of income inequality and low-income trends in Canada from an international perspective. It addresses a series of questions, including: - Is family income inequality rising in Canada after decades of stability? - Is Canada a low- or high-income inequality country? - Does Canada have a low or high low-income rate as compared to other western nations? - Does the tax/transfer system reduce low-income rates in Canada more than in the U.S. or in European countries? - Has the low-income rate and the depth of low income risen in Canada during the past two decades? - Does rising low income among immigrants significantly affect the aggregate low-income rate? - Do most spells of low income become long-term, and among which groups is persistent low income concentrated? The paper uses the results from a number of papers to address these questions.
