Geographies

View geographic profiles for each of the four dimensions of integration across different time periods (1991-2014). A CIMI standard composite ranking is provided for each province and city based on the availability of data, along with separate dimension rankings for each time period of interest.

Ontario

Province Profile (2011 - )

Ontario shows moderately low levels of integration across all four domains: economic, health, social, civic and democratic participation.

Economic

This dimension includes eight indicators drawn from the 2011 Census. Ontario ranks high on low-income measures, mid-range for wages, but ranks low in terms of labour force participation and full-time employment status.

Social

This dimension includes six indicators drawn from the 2013 General Social Survey. Ontario ranks high for sense of belonging to Canada, but ranks low on all other measures of social integration (e.g., sense of belonging to local community and province).

Civic & Democratic Participation

This dimension includes four indicators drawn from the 2013 General Social Survey. Ontario ranks mid-range for involvement in organizations over the past 1-5 years and voting in the last provincial/federal elections, but ranks low in terms of unpaid volunteer work in the past 12 months.

Health

This dimension includes five indicators drawn from the 2014 Canadian Community Health Survey. Ontario ranks high in terms of having a medical doctor, but ranks low for self-perceived life stress and cost as a barrier to health care access.
