Vanier Institute Issues Report on Canadian Families

The Ottawa-based Vanier Institute has published a study on Canadian families based on the 2006 census. According to the CBC article on the study:
  • 40% of marriages now end in divorce
  • one in ten people live in an unmarried, common-law relationship
  • 16.5% of same-sex couples marry
I'm sure there's more to the Institute's 211-page study than the CBA has reported; read the summary to learn more. You can also visit the website of Statistics Canada and get your data right from the horse's mouth.
