Likely Toronto, but my first inclination is to go with a city like Winnipeg with it's ~10% native indian population.

Toronto, exremely poor immigrants don't help. 10% of the GTA is poor.

I'm not too sure but I would think Vancouver, though I don't know a whole lot about the city. The cost of living especially for housing, is so expensive and then BC has the lowest minimum wage so it seems logical.,

There is not a marked difference between Canadian cities I would say. But if forced to choose it would probably be the two with the highest cost of living (Toronto and Vancouver), which also happen to attract the most immigrants - many of which take a bit of time before settling in economically and therefore often live in difficult conditions in the meantime.

It must be Vancouver. There are many poor family working in the service industry to serve the rich.

We don't need to consider the poor, how poor can you be in Canada anyway? Just by looking at the most wealthy we should know where the most gap is.
And also, don't look at published income figures. They shed very little light. Many real rich folks don't work, or do when they please.

Toronto has the widest gap.

I agree--very large Aboriginal population in Winnipeg, who are mostly very poor.
