Have your say on how poverty is measured

Stats Canada is looking to validate how poverty is measured, and they want to hear from you. The agency has created a short questionnaire on current estimates of how much money a family needs for items like food, clothing, shelter, and transportation. 

The questionnaire takes no more than 5 minutes to complete, and will be open to all Canadians until January 31, 2019. Participation is anonymous and respondent information is protected under the Privacy Act

For more information or to complete the questionnaire, visit

Your input is important because it will support Stats Canada's ability to accurately measure low income and poverty.
