Growing income gap in Canada even worse for Aboriginal peoples

Income inequality has been growing in Canada, but it's even worse for Aboriginal peoples. For every dollar non-Aboriginals earned in 2006, Aboriginal peoples earned only 70 cents – a slight narrowing from 1996 when it was 56 cents for every dollar.

The gap between Aboriginal peoples and the rest of Canadians narrowed slightly between 1996 and 2006, but at this rate it won’t disappear for another 63 years without a new approach. Read the study here.
