Canadian Institute of Wellbeing – First Report Released – How are Canadians really doing? – 10 June 2009

“If you’ve ever wondered How Canadians are REALLY doing, you’re in the right place. A newly released report shows that: even in good economic times the lion’s share of benefits go to the wealthy while the poor stay poor and the shrinking middle class muddles through; Canadians are living longer but not healthier – health among teenagers is especially worrying; but crime is down and social relationships in our communities are stronger. The report also shows that cuts or lack of improvements to government programs like welfare, Employment Insurance and publicly funded medical services are hurting Canadians.

Check out the First Report (PDF 4MB) for an easy to read overview of these and other important findings or download the full research reports for Living Standards, Healthy Populations and Community Vitality to learn more.”
