Income maps for 8 CMAs

For Halifax, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Hamilton, Winnipeg, Calgary and Vancouver. This is based on 2012 taxfiler data, not the 2011 NHS.

Unless you're in upper Westmount, the second wealthiest census tract in the country.

Poor Hamilton! The only city with no wealthy inner-city districts. Interesting outlier.

The Toronto map is also a great representation of where transit is good and where it sucks.

Good find. Winnipeg looks about as I'd expect it to. Downtown and north central areas are the lowest income areas, the wealthy areas are mostly scattered around the periphery with a few central beachheads.

Interesting how the West Exchange is ranked as a low income area while the East Exchange is near the top.

So do these CMAs have follow the "donut" or "favored quarter" (wedges) model?

Yeah... Montreal doesn't look much worse than Toronto.

I'm not usually concerned when Edmonton is left out of lists, but its lack of inclusion in this particular set of data maps is actually baffling.

Biggest surprise is that Calgary's lowest income areas are so concentrated in the NE.

It's not a surprise to anyone from Calgary. Next time you visit take a drive in the NE. You'll understand immediately. The more ramshackle parts of Temple, Applewood etc. are the closest thing to a ghetto besides Forest Lawn in this city.

I didn't realise just how big the Winnipeg CMA was.

Also I did not know south Westdale was poor. The rest of the west end is so well off I thought it was too (maybe it's all the Mac students?).

I have this impression of sketchy places in Calgary being somewhere where a person wouldn't smile back at you if you made eye contact.

I don't know Calgary at all, aside from bits of downtown and the airport area. My cousin lives there. I should give you her address and have you evaluate it. She used to live in Sarnia.

Low annual income but high personal net worth maybe?

Yeah I figured someone would point out Ogden in the SE. Basically everything on the east side north of that.

We may not be Edmonton level but there are sketchier parts of the city. Nothing like the States though.

I've been through the NE side a few times, but mostly the commercial / industrial parts and never found them to be "representative" of lower-income areas, but I've never been in the residential areas there, maybe that's where it's more noticeable.
