The health gap between low-income Canadians and those with higher salaries is growing.

That’s according to a survey  done for  The Canadian Medical Association  by Ipsos Reid .

It finds that 68 per cent of people with salaries of  $60,000  or more report they are in excellent or very good health.

That’s compared with only 39 per cent of people who earn less than $30,000

The C-M-A is sounding the alarm about how much greater that disparity has become since a 2009 survey, when the difference was 17 per cent.
