2016-census New Brunswick shows lowest median household income in Canada

New Brunswick has slipped to the bottom of the list of median household income of all provinces and territories, down from second-lowest in 2005.

Statistics Canada’s latest release of 2016 census data provides details about income levels across Canada, where the national household median sat at $70,336 in 2015.

In New Brunswick, the median was $59,347.

This number is up, however, from New Brunswick’s median income of $53,483 in 2005.

The second-lowest ranked province or territory was Quebec, at $59,822.

While the Atlantic provinces and Canada showed lower medians than the rest of Canada, Newfoundland and Labrador went from the lowest median income in the region in 2005, at $52,204, to the highest in 2015, at $62,272. 

The release notes that “among metropolitan areas in the rest of Atlantic Canada, only the median income in Miramichi, N.B., grew at a faster pace than the slowest-growing Newfoundland and Labrador metropolitan area.”
