Abstract:

Ontario's backslide by the numbers -- Budget measures -- "Austerity" in the context of soaring inequality -- Income inequality and poverty -- Disproportionate impacts of income inequality -- Women and the income gap -- The racialization of poverty -- Unfair shares: Aboriginal people, unemployment and poverty -- Economic insecurity among seniors -- Child poverty -- Housing and homelessness -- Food security -- The social determinants of health -- Racialized health disparities -- The squeeze on social programs -- Health care: burgeoning unmet needs -- Downloading the cost of education onto families -- Community services overwhelmed -- Cuts to youth programs -- Cuts to social assistance and disability support programs -- The erosion of unemployment insurance protection -- The race to the bottom: tax cuts and inequality -- Conclusion and recommendations.

Thirteen million of the most highly educated people in the world call Ontario home. Endowed with rich natural resources, vast tracts of farmland, quadrillions of litres of freshwater, the rugged beauty of the Canadian Shield, and an industrial hub that stretches across its southern reaches; it is almost inconceivable that this province houses a generation of residents who are experiencing the largest increase in inequality in this province's history. Yet the evidence is indisputable. Ontario is falling behind the rest of Canada in terms of growing poverty, increasing inequality and flagging financial support for vital public services.
