That number has been disputed and the article is from 2014. At that time the FRO system was being investigated in Ontario and was found to be over charging people.

So a lot of the number was the result of improper calculations on the part of FRO.

I don't think it has a significant impact. Child Support is fractional in what the real cost of raising children is. No one lives off child support and generally if you are in need of social services the parent of the children is not some crazy 150,000+ income earner not paying child support.

Just punch incomes into mysupportcalculator.ca and see what they spit out. Start with the average income for a Canadian (51,000). Which for 1 child is 470 in CS or a whopping $5640. That won't lift anyone in poverty out of poverty. They will still need social services.

You want to improve the situation. Learn to develop software. Average income for a software developer is 100,000+. You won't even want the $5640 from the other parent.
