The share of income going to Canada’s top one per cent has risen sharply since the mid 1980s. Who are Canada’s one per cent? What explains their rising share? How does the rising one per cent compare to other measures of income inequality such as poverty? Is the rising one per cent a problem and, if so, what can be done about it?
