Our Kids Network Neighbourhood Profiles

The neighbourhood profiles provide local data for 27 neighbourhoods across Halton. They provide an integrated and detailed picture of the well-being of children 0 to 12 years-old and their families. Use the profiles to learn more about Halton neighbourhoods, and to identify concerns and opportunities to better support children and their families.

Data sources for the Neighbourhood Profiles include:

  • Statistics Canada (2016)
  • Early Development Instrument (2015)
  • Education and Accountability Office (2015/2016)
  • IntelliHEALTH Ontario (2015/2016)

What is a neighbourhood?

OKN neighbourhoods map
Our Kids Network partners, researchers, and community professionals have identified 27 different neighbourhoods for the purpose of collecting, analyzing and sharing important local research - one the hallmarks of OKN’s work in Halton. The neighbourhoods’ borders reflect Statistics Canada census boundaries, and natural, transportation, municipal, regional boundaries. 

Each neighbourhood must have at least 50 children who are 5 years old. The neighbourhood boundaries must be meaningful and recognizable to the community residents.
