Where are you on the income ladder? | University Affairs
As well, I found it somewhat curious that StatsCan decided to focus on high-income earners in their release. To be in the top 10% of earners in Canada, you needed to have a total income of around $80,400; for the top 5%, it was $102,300; and for the top 1%, it was $191,100. Perhaps not surprisingly, high-income Canadians tended to be highly educated – 67.1% of the top 1% had attained a university degree compared with 20.9% of all Canadians aged 15 and over.
