Much has been written recently about the rise of within-country inequality and growing imbalances of regional fortunes in the US and EU. In this paper, we apply a novel geo-visualization technique that combines local indicators of spatial association (LISAs) with directional statistics to a unique dataset in order to explore the spatial dimensions of regional income inequalities in Canada from 1981 to 2016. After describing a pattern of growing spatial divergence among regions, we briefly discuss the need for the federal government to explore new types of place-sensitive development policies.
