Indigenous people living on-reserve and Inuit are more likely to have low incomes than other Canadians, a Statistics Canada report suggests.

A study based on the 2016 census examined household incomes in First Nations communities and across the North. The study considered low income to mean earning less than half the median household income for Canada.

For a four-person family, the low-income threshold on that basis is $44,080. For a two-person family, it’s $31,169. The report did not take into account the cost of living, which is substantially higher in the North.
