A new report says Toronto has the highest percentage of children living in poverty of any large city in Canada — 27 per cent — and that the closest runner-up is Montreal.

In Montreal, 25 per cent of children were living in poverty in 2014. At 24 per cent, Winnipeg was third on a list of Canadian cities with a population higher than 500,000.

The report, titled Divided City: Life in Canada’s Child Poverty Capital, says 133,000 children in Toronto were living in low-income families in 2014, the year the data were collected.
