Voices of Multicultural Youth: Impact of Neighbourhood on health and well-being

Youth of today are the leaders of tomorrow. Their healthy growth and development is of collective interest to our society. On third of the 242,000 newcomers arriving each year to Canada are youth. Young people face very different challenges than those of their parents. This study was carried out in St. James Town, using photovoice to explore how the youth’s health and well-being are affected by this neighbourhood. This study is based on the social determinants of health approach which recognizes that both individual and structural factors affect a person’s health and well-being.
