A recent study published by the Metcalf Foundation found that Metro Vancouver had the second-highest rate of working poverty of any major city in Canada in 2012, with a rate only slightly lower than Greater Toronto. This report digs deeper into the data from the Metcalf Foundation study, maps the extent of working poverty in Vancouver and its growth by neighbourhood, and puts forward recommendations for change. Though this study focuses on Metro Vancouver, working poverty exists elsewhere in BC as well. Our analysis shows that 7.2 per cent of working-age British Columbians living outside of Metro Vancouver are working poor.
