With Niagara’s shift toward an aging population, our authors looked to the region’s youth to examine where Niagara’s workforce is headed, highlight potential future opportunities, and understand where Niagara’s youth fit within a broader provincial snapshot. This paper updates the Niagara Community Observatory’s policy brief #28 with research into the demographic patterns, educational attainment, and reported occupations of the region’s youth, age 15 to 29, using the latest 2016 Census numbers.
