Poverty Increases for Children and Seniors

A recent CTV news report notes that Toronto has the highest percentage of youth living in poverty of Canada’s 14 largest urban areas, according to a newly released report.

The report was released by the Toronto Children’s Aid Society Tuesday, and was compiled using tax filer data from Statistics Canada for 2013.

 

“Children of colour, Indigenous children, children from single-parent or newcomer families, and children with disabilities are more likely to experience poverty in Toronto,” it said.
