On September 19, Statistics Canada released census data on families, households and marital status. Analysis of the data showed us that the structure of Canada's families is changing. When interviewed by the Globe and Mail, Vanier CEO Nora Spinks said, "Now when people say family, it's what does it look like to you?" This issue of By the Numbers takes a look at blended families, aboriginal families, interracial relationships and many others, with links taking you directly to the Statistics Canada source page.
