Hell, even growing up in the GTA, most anyone I knew who played on any sort of travelling select team was pretty well off. You had to be just to be able to chauffeur your kid around the province at all times of the week.
My brother made the AA team when he was around 13 or 14 but we just didn't have the time or resources to drive him around the province. You pretty well needed to be a 'one income' family (i.e. one BIG income parent and one homemaker) to make it work.
Most of the best players I knew growing up were very well off financially.
