BC and Vancouver still the worse for child poverty

In late November, First Call released their annual Child Poverty Report Card, that again showed that BC remains near the bottom when it comes to various measures of poverty.
The report found:

  • BC had the worst rate of child poverty in Canada;
  • Two-thirds of all children living in poverty live in Greater Vancouver;
  • 43% of poor children in BC lived with at least one adult working full-time;
  • Most poor families lived many thousands of dollars below the poverty line.
