Around 20 per cent of NB seniors living in poverty

A new study has found that 20 per cent of seniors in this province are living in poverty.

The University of Moncton says more than 25,000 people aged 65 and over are surviving on less than $14,000 a year.

The study found that women tend to be worse off than men, rural seniors worse off than those in urban areas and Francophones worse off than anglophones.
