Date Notes: ‘The Low-income measure, after tax, refers to a fixed percentage (50%) of median adjusted after-tax income of private households. The household after-tax
income is adjusted by an equivalence scale to take economies of scale into account. This adjustment for different household sizes reflects the fact that a household’s
needs increase, but at a decreasing rate, as the number of members increases. Using data from the 2016 Census of Population, the line applicable to a household is
defined as half the Canadian median of the adjusted household after-tax income, multiplied by the square root of household size. The median is determined based on all
persons in private households where low-income concepts are applicable.
