Quebec earnings gap at 30-year high

A groundbreaking new report shows the earnings gap between the rich and the rest of Quebeckers is at a 30-year high.

The report, co-published by Institut de recherche et d’informations socio-economiques (IRIS) and the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (CCPA), looks at income inequality among Quebec families raising children under the age of 18.

 It finds income inequality got worse between 1976 and 2006 – in fact, 70% of Quebec families are earning a smaller share of the income pie than a generation ago.
