Poverty is not only about the numbers. It's about the stark realities of daily life for millions of Canadians. We hope that the numbers provided here will help communities share information, leverage resources and create solutions to the blight of urban poverty in Canada.
The Urban Poverty Project 2007 is a series of comprehensive analytical reports, resource tools, and data profiles which take a broad look at different aspects of urban poverty in Canada, using detailed data from Statistics Canada Censuses and other sources. Reports in the UPP series pay special attention to the status of certain population groups particularly vulnerable to poverty, while others examine the concentration of poverty in urban neighbourhoods.
This series of online documents and resources is designed to be both user-and-planet-friendly. It includes fact sheets, poverty data tables, in-depth reports and summary documents.
