A demographic, employment and income profile of Canadians with disabilities aged 15 years and over, 2017

This article represents the first main release by Statistics Canada based on findings from the 2017 Canadian Survey on Disability. It is divided into three sections – demographics, employment, and income – and is guided by three main questions: What is the prevalence of disabilities in Canada? How does the employment level of persons with disabilities compare to those without disabilities? How does income compare between persons with and without disabilities, and what implications does this have regarding poverty?
