Five things to know about the relationship between poverty

2 hours ago

Estimated Reading Time: 11 mins
1. In Canada, there is no official measure of poverty. The way in which we measure and define poverty has implications for policies developed to reduce poverty and its effect on health.
2. There is a social gradient in health. Substantial and robust evidence confirms a direct link between socioeconomic status and health status — meaning people in the lowest socioeconomic group carry the greatest burden of illness.
3. Poverty in childhood is associated with a number of health conditions in adulthood. More than one in seven Canadian children live in poverty — this places Canada 15 out of 17 similar developed countries, and being at the bottom of this list is not where we want to be.
4. People living in poverty face more barriers to access and care. It has been found that Canadians experiencing low-income are more likely to report that they have not received needed health care in the past 12 months.
5. There is a profound two-way relationship between poverty and health. What this means is people with limited access to income are often more socially isolated, experience more stress, have poorer mental and physical health and fewer opportunities for early childhood development and post-secondary education.
