TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - April 20, 2016) -  On Thursday, April 21, the Fraser Institute will release a new study spotlighting income mobility in Canada -- the ability of Canadians to move up the income ladder. 

Amid the ongoing discussions about income inequality, Measuring Income Mobility in Canada, 2016, uses Statistics Canada data to track nearly one million Canadians, over a period of 19 years, to measure how their income changes over time.

A news release with additional information will be issued via Marketwired on April 21 at 5:30 a.m. (Eastern).

Study co-author Charles Lammam is available for media interviews from Toronto.
