Most low income Canadians move up income ladder: Study

CALGARY — Over a span of 10 years, four out of five of Canada’s lowest income earners moved up the income ladder, according to a new study.

One in five Canadians in the lowest income group eventually moved up to the highest income group over a 19-year period, according to the study, published by the Fraser Institute, a Canadian independent public policy think-tank.
