1: There are TEN provinces and three TERRITORIES ...
NOT 13 provinces.
“…With Canada’s Housing and Rental Markets already having been a hot news topic for Canadians over the past decade with housing prices continued rising pricing year-over-year, the new interest rate hikes which have already lead to higher mortgage rates, has created a very anxious environment for many Canadians, and a topic of much discussion for many economists, banking institutions, policy makers, and media commentators.
RentSeeker.ca, one of Canada’s largest and most popular real estate listing and reporting websites, today published a new INFOGRAPHIC showing the average cost of rents and housing prices across all 13 provinces with a newly released affordability index showing how much average income per household is spent on housing.
British Colombia tops the list with 24% of income spent on housing costs, with Ontario following in close second with 23%. View all the data points for all 13 provinces below:..”
@Native Women's Association of Canada "... NWAC has developed a survey so that we can hear directly from Indigenous women on how to reduce poverty in communities across Canada. Your answers will inform a larger Poverty Reduction Strategy. Thank you for participating!
To access the survey: https://s.surveyplanet.com/B1h-2888-x ..."
This survey has been developed because we want to hear directly from First Nations and Métis women on how to reduce poverty in communities across Canada. This survey will take about 20 minutes to complete and will focus on what services you access or are available in your community. The first few questions are basic questions about you that we ask so we have a better idea of who is responding, and can better represent your answers. Your answers will inform a larger Poverty Reduction Strategy. If you would like to contribute to the larger Federal Government engagement on poverty reduction, please visit
If you have any questions about this survey please e-mail or call NWAC Policy Analyst Leah Quinlan at firstname.lastname@example.org (613)-355-8948

"… Yellowknife's #homeless #crisis: Government plays catch up as people try to survive
on the street in one of #coldest cities in the world - Clayton Bearard takes a sip from a dark brown bottle before passing it around a circle of people across from Yellowknife's downtown liquor store. It's not even three o'clock in the afternoon but with a stretch of warm weather following a frigid spring blizzard, the growing huddle of street people seem happy to soak up the sun as they polish off a 26 oz. bottle of Private Stock.
Clayton, a 43-year-old originally Fort Resolution, N.T., hasn't worked a steady job since injuring his back while working construction more than a decade ago – an accident which exacerbated a painful spinal condition that's bothered him since he was a child. Between a monthly disability check and contracts for shovelling snow and other odd jobs, he manages to make enough to buy the booze and weed he needs to numb the physical and emotional pain that has come from living a hard life on the streets. …"

They deployed their 360 camera ahead of the herd to and waited over an hour for the caribou to pass by. "We watched hopefully. After all our efforts, it would still takes a bit of luck to get a our shot. And then – success! The migrating caribou passed right by the 360-camera, seemingly inquisitive of this foreign arrival in their land.”
The result? Intimate never-seen-before footage of the herd as they wandered by.
