Toronto is no longer a “city of neighbourhoods” but has become a “city of disparities”. That is a key finding of powerful new research from the University of Toronto’s Centre for Urban and Community Studies. The “City of Disparities” research bulletin, The Three Cities Within Toronto: Income Polarization among Toronto’s Neighbourhoods, 1970 – 2000, and media realease set out the dramatic growth in income gaps over the past three decades – as the rich get richer, the poor grow more numerous and the middle-income shrink. Set together on one page, four maps chart the grim progress towards a grossly inequitable city. This research confirms and builds on earlier research from TD Economics, which marks growing poverty in Toronto, and the United Way of Greater Toronto which confirms this critical trend.
