Living With Mom and Dad in Ontario: North & South 2016 Census Results


Statistics Canada released its 2016 Families, Households andMarital Status Results for the 2016 Census on August 2nd and the results show that proportionally fewer households are composed of a 'mom, dad and kids' family and more people are either living alone, or as part of a couple without children, or as part of a multi-generational family. However, the other interesting result was that the proportion of adults aged 20 to 34 living with parents was 34.7 percent and has been increasing since 2001 when it was 30.6 percent.  It is both a northern and southern Ontario phenomenon.
