Income Gaps and Changing Needs in the City of Toronto in the 1990s


This report was prepared by the Canadian Council on Social Development for the United Way of Greater Toronto, October 2001.

This report provides important new data on the financial circumstances of Torontonians in the 1990s. While other research studies have examined income trends at the national and provincial levels in the 1990s, and in Toronto in the first half of the decade, this study is the first to focus on what happened to Torontonians during the entire decade. Tax filer data were used to track income over the 10-year period, confirming that at the decade's end, the financial situation of Torontonians had worsened significantly.
