Ch. 15 and 16. Family Law Act 31.(1) Every parent has an obligation to provide support for his or her unmarried child who is a minor or is enrolled in a full time program of education, to the extent that the parent is capable of doing so. (2) The obligation under subsection (1) does not extend to a child who is sixteen years of age or older and has withdrawn from parental control. R.S.O. 1990, c. F.3, s. 31 (2). Obligation of child to support parent 32. Every child who is not a minor has an obligation to provide support, in accordance with need, for his or her parent who has cared for or provided support for the child, to the extent that the child is capable of doing so. R.S.O. 1990, c. F.3, s. 32. Income and Poverty Inequalities of wealth and income produce unequal life chances. Poverty translates into homelessness, ill health, short life expectancy, malnutrition, amid hunger. A significant number of Canadians live in poverty. The number of poor people was nearly 5 million in 2003 and the poverty rate was nearly 16 percent. These income disparities produce an inequality of opportunities and life chances and create negative outcomes for individuals in low-income and poor families. Income and Health Those with high incomes, for instance, live longer, healthier and more disability -free lives on average than those who are poor. Similar patterns of disease, illness, and mortality prevail for children. Life Expectancy Number of years a person would be expected to live based on mortality statistics for a given observation period. Life expectancy is a measure of longevity and not quality of life. It is a widely used indicator of the health status of the population. 1
