Young people live in a monthly deficit position in Canadian cities making urban centers unaffordable to the country’s future generations. On average young people are losing $750 per month by living in cities across the country. To break even young people would need to isolate themselves- no entertainment, no transportation, and no dining out. Is this the position we want young people to be in?
After two years of dialogue with youth across Canada and a global pandemic hitting youth economic and mental health outcomes very hard, we are back with the 2021 Urban Work Index. It is bigger—now 27 cities, and broader with the addition of 7 new categories. The 2021 report is now available!
Youthful Cities Open Data Literacy & Activation Program: Open Up is seeking to revolutionize the way youth-serving organizations affect change in their communities. By empowering organizations with the tools to activate open data, they can expand the reach of their work and connect with new audiences (funders, policymakers, community members) in meaningful evidence-based ways.
