Income, Prosperity & Poverty 

In 2007, the Conference Board of Canada in its report – “The Canada Project – Sustainable Prosperity for Canada” suggested that twenty-first century cities will be the drivers of prosperity. However, most cities now show increasing extremes of wealth and poverty along with overwhelming social challenges, industrial restructuring with the resulting job losses and / or replacement with lower paying service jobs.
