Across the board, Canadians have fared well over the past few years, reports Quartz. But Canada’s poorest have seen the largest gains, with the bottom 20% seeing a 24% wealth boost between 2013 and 2016. In the US, the richest 10% of Americans saw a 32% wealth bump, while the poorest 20% reaped a 16% gain in that time.
This is cribbed from an article entitled The American dream still exists—in Canada.
