Page 31 of the report, under Canada at the right hand side, clearly states the 2005 data on income used for Canada excluded the Yukon, Northwest Territories, Nunavut, and First Nation communities; only 3 % of Canada's population.

The UNICEF report basically left out Canada’s Indigenous Peoples. It is a well published fact that the poorest segment of Canada’s population is its Aboriginal people. They experience the widest gap in child poverty, education and health in Canada. Canada could have submitted data for the UNICEF report from a Census in which the data for Canada’s North and its Indigenous Peoples are included, but it did not. It is very likely that a closer look at data submitted by most countries for this report would also reveal the exclusion of their identifiable poor.

 

This UNICEF report may be no more then a tool for the world’s wealthiest nations to mislead those concerned regarding the child poverty, health and education gaps in their respective developed countries; this appears true for Canada.
