Generation Flux: Understanding the Seismic Shifts That Are Shaking Canada's Youth

Community Foundations of Canada

Each year through the "Vital Signs" program, 49 Canadian community foundations produce local and national "Vital Signs" reports. This 2012 #GenerationFlux study concentrated on youth issues.
Today's young people are growing up in an era of complexity and uncertainty. Changes have delayed, or even destroyed, the landmarks that once signaled a transition from one phase of life to another. Topics include: economic uncertainty; unemployment; economic disadvantage; tuition increases; developments in aboriginal youth communities; and physical and metal health issues. The values of young people, and the new skills that they're implementing, are explored.
