Income inequality (and wealth inequality) has been worsening in Canada over recent decades. Growing income polarization, while morally unjust, has real (and negative) social consequences. A decline in good, well-paying, jobs will only fuel this disparity. The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives has tracked this phenomenon through its ground-breaking Growing Gap Project. The Centre has taken a careful look at, what they dub, “one of the biggest challenges of our time.” The Centre has also released a number of research studies, info graphics and fact sheets aimed at tracking household income, wealth, spending and credit data.
