A new study suggests that Quebec has enough wealth to eliminate poverty.
Researchers found that a growing number of low-income Quebecers are better able to cover their basic needs, based on a 10-year period.
Yet upward mobility within this population, the researchers found, was tied to how well they were doing financially at the start of the period. Those on the lowest end of the economic spectrum experienced no upward mobility.
