Majority of Torontonians were born outside Canada
A new report shows that 51 per cent of Toronto’s residents were born outside Canada, highlighting the cosmopolitan nature of the city. The Toronto Foundation’s Vital Signs Report reveals some other interesting insights including some good news for the city’s police department as almost 80 per cent say they would feel somewhat safe walking along the streets at night. High youth unemployment and low wages are a concern and cause issues for affordability of housing with rent for a one bedroom apartment eating up 40 per cent of a young person’s full-time wage. The report also shows that Toronto’s seniors make up 14.5 per cent of the population.
