Intentions : This objective of this report was to extend « [...] our analysis of groups vulnerable to poverty by looking at some of the most basic dimensions or cleavages of the population – gender, age and family type. These dimensions are closely linked with the life cycle and they are often associated with an increased risk of poverty. » (p. 47)

« When we applied a gender lens to our analysis, we found that women and men had very different poverty patterns as they navigated their way through the life cycle. [...] Indeed, the dimensions of gender, age and family can bind together to produce poverty profiles of economic inequality across the country – but in some cities, the impact of these dimensions can be more (or less) pronounced than in others. Each city has a unique profile and mix. Some cities had much more favourable poverty profiles for one group than for others in their midst. And despite having a favourable overall poverty profile, some cities can have « hidden » pockets of poverty where high levels of economic disadvantage among certain groups cut across lines of gender, age and family status. This can make the problem even more insidious and more difficult to address. » (p. 47) This authors gave a clear portrait of the urban poverty by making such a vast comparison between canadian cities.
