Abstract:

"The Opportunity Equation in the Greater Toronto Area uses income data from the 2016 Census to provide the most up to date portrait of neighbourhood income inequality and polarization in the GTA. It shows that the gap between rich and poor has grown dramatically across our region. Across the GTA, middle-income neighbourhoods are vanishing, more neighbourhoods are low-income, and high-income neighbourhoods are getting richer. The picture is bleak in major cities throughout the country, but the gap is worst in the Toronto region. This report confirms the GTA’s unfortunate status as the income inequality capital of Canada. These trends mean that where you live increasingly determines your access to opportunity. This is a real threat to our shared value that everyone should have a fair chance to build a good life."--Publisher.
