Income inequality is getting worse in Manitoba: the market income of the bottom 20 percent of Manitoba families declined while the top 20 percent of Manitoba families received greater income increases than the national average.
The Chasm Widens: Inequality in Manitoba Update by Dr. Ian Hudson finds income in Manitoba is not only lower, but remarkably unequal. The average market income of the lowest decile was $4,800 in 2020, an amount on which it would be completely impossible for a family with children to meet even their most basic needs. The average market income of the top decile was $268,800, 56 times the average market income of the lowest decile.
