Single-Parent Families On The Rise According to 2016 Census

The 2016 census is showcasing more seismic changes in the way we are living.

It finds couples without kids are outpacing their procreating counterparts, same-sex relationships are blossoming, multiple generations are living under the same roof and more people than ever are living alone.

Single-parent families grew by 5.6 per cent between 2011 and 2016 and one in three Canadians aged 20-34 was living with at least one
parent last year, up five percentage points from 2001.

Slightly more than 28 per cent of the 14.1-million households in Canada in 2016 comprised only a single person.
