The Social Profile of Halton Region 2014 captures the changing social portrait of the community. It highlights the socio-demographic characteristics of the community as a whole and its population sub-groups (e.g. children, seniors, families, immigrants and low income population).
The evidence of the current state of and changes within the community provides vital information to all levels of government for their decision making process in the planning and delivery of services to residents. Social service agencies are in a better position to mobilize their often limited resources to bridge service gaps. Residents are better informed of the needs and potentials of their local communities.
Collectively, the social profiles will form a valuable knowledge base to a wide range of practitioners in community development, social planning and research, volunteer management, and other community-based activities.
