The link between poverty and race in Saskatchewan

This Focus Saskatchewan feature from Global News highlights how certain groups in the province (e.g. First Nations and Métis peoples, single parent households, recent immigrants, and people with disabilities) have considerably higher rates of poverty. For example, while about a quarter of children in SK live in poverty (Campaign 2000 report), 64% of status First Nations children in the province live in poverty (CCPA, 2013).
