The wealth diversity of Canada’s cities
The gap between the cities with the highest and lowest incomes has been highlighted in a new study by Statistics Canada. The figures show that Calgary has the highest median figure at $98,000; well above the national average which comes in at $73,000. Edmonton, Ottawa-Gatineau, Saskatoon and Regina are all home to higher incomes. The other end of the scale takes in Canada’s three largest cities. Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal all lag well behind Calgary. This is partly affected by immigrant families who choose the largest urban areas but struggle to secure higher wages when they first move here.
