  • Print

WINNIPEG — Winnipeg had 19th highest median total family income among 33 Canadian cities in 2008, according to new data issued today.

Total family income includes employment income, investment income, government transfers, pension income and other income. The median is the point where half of the families’ incomes are higher and half are lower.

Statistics Canada said data derived from 2008 personal income tax returns show Winnipeg families had a median income of $70,510 for that year — the same as families in Windsor, Ont.

Calgary had the highest median family income at $91,570, with Edmonton ($88,190), Ottawa-Gatineau ($87,160), Oshawa ($83,220) and Guelph ($81,910) rounding out the Top 5.

Winnipeg also had the thirteenth biggest increase in median family income from 2007 to 2008, at 1.5 per cent. Saskatoon had the top gain, at 4.1 per cent, followed by St. John’s (4.0), Greater Sudbury (3.9), and Saint John and Edmonton at 3.3 per cent each.
