Abstract

The Income Study is part of the Life After Service Studies (LASS) program of research. This report examines relative income and family income using Statistics Canada’s low income measure (LIM); and describes income trends and income differences between sub-populations within a larger population of Veterans. Post-release, Veterans on average experience a decline in income. VAC programs reach the groups with the largest declines. Small numbers of Veterans experience low income. Unfortunately, most low income Veterans are not clients of VAC.
