Chapter 1 lists the main elements of the complicated process of qualifying for welfare in Canada -- Chapters 2 to 5 focus on each family type, comparing their welfare incomes over time and gauging their adequacy using two low-income measures—Low income cut-offs and the Market Basket Measure—as well as average and median incomes -- Chapter 6 looks at liquid asset provisions as of January 1, 2009 and for the first time compares 1989 levels in constant dollars of 2009 to those of 2009 -- Chapter 7 deals with earnings exemption provisions. Here we also look at the potential impact of the federal Working Income Tax Benefit (WITB) on welfare households with earnings.
