CENTRAL HUB

YouthREX’s Central Hub supports grassroots organizations working in Toronto, Dufferin, Halton, Peel, Simcoe, Waterloo, Wellington and York.

There are 1.5 million youth living in the Central Region.

Over half of Toronto’s neighborhoods are considered low-income and many parents are not in a position to provide the numerous supports youth need.

The GTA is considered the most diverse regions in Canada, with over half the population born outside the country.
