The health gap between low-income Canadians and those with higher salaries is growing.
That’s according to a survey done for The Canadian Medical Association by Ipsos Reid .
It finds that 68 per cent of people with salaries of $60,000 or more report they are in excellent or very good health.
That’s compared with only 39 per cent of people who earn less than $30,000
The C-M-A is sounding the alarm about how much greater that disparity has become since a 2009 survey, when the difference was 17 per cent.
