The “Working Poor” in the Toronto Region: Who they are, where they live, and how trends are changing


This report is a combination of data from the Census of Canada and sophisticated statistical tools to identify who the working poor are, where they live in the city of Toronto and the Toronto Region, and where the growth in their numbers has far outstripped Ontario and the rest of Canada. Described are some of the demographic trends for this group, and illustrate their gradual geographical shift toward the eastern part of the city and into the suburbs and surrounding cities of the Toronto Region.
