Regent Park is the oldest public housing project and one of the most economically disadvantaged regions in Canada. While extremely rich in diversity, it is a community that faces many race, language, and cultural barriers.
Over 80 per cent of residents are visible minorities, and for many, English is a second language.
Few families are earning more than $18,000 per year (less than 1/3 of the national average)
The region has twice the number of single-parent families as the rest of Toronto
