25% of Canadians living in poverty

Sharing is Caring!

According to a recent report from Food Banks Canada, approximately 25% of Canadians may be living in poverty. The report introduced a material deprivation index (MDI), which assesses 11 essential items that Canadians surveyed said they could not afford. These items include clothing and dental care. Based on this metric, the report estimates that 10 million of Canada’s 40 million people are living in poverty, compared to the four million reported by Statistics Canada using a different model called the Market Basket Measure. The MDI provides a deeper understanding of economic distress and could enhance outreach efforts to address food insecurity.
