3. Résumé

« In this book we will look at jut how many of Canada’s children live in poverty, exploring trends over time, across provinces, and among various groups. We will see which Canadian children are most vulnerable to poverty on child development and its outcomes. We will also look at some of the ways that poverty is measured in this country and around the worlds, and consider Canada in an international context to assess how the country compares – and why. We will uncover the importance of the year 1989 to child poverty in Canada and conclude with a look at the attempts (and failures) to tackle child poverty and the suggestions for improvement – in the hope of, indeed, making Canada one of the best places in the world to live. » (p. xviii)
