The neighbourhoods were identified through the Neighbourhood Creation Project (Ontario Early Years Niagara Region, Niagara Region Public Health Department - 2006). The map was created by UEY (2007), in partnership with the Data Analysis Coordinator at the Regional Municipality of Niagara and the Offord Centre for Child Studies at McMaster University. Base features for the map were created by the PREP Unit, Public Health.  The neighbourhoods are outlined in brown.

We have also worked closely with the Early Years Niagara Research Advisory Group and the Niagara Region's Ontario Early Years Data Analysis Coordinator to make decisions on how best to report the information given mandated restraints (i.e. neighbourhood samples with less than 30 children cannot be reported on in order to protect confidentiality and privacy).

As a result, 4 of the 6 neighbourhoods in Fort Erie were amalgamated in order to report on EDI data and create a long-term workable solution. Neighbourhoods were amalgamated based on geographic proximity and similar socioeconomic conditions. This map will only be used for reporting EDI results. Maps with the original neighbourhoods will be used to report on socioeconomic conditions and community resources and their names will be included in all maps - out of respect and appreciation for the work and wisdom of the community champions who participated in the Neighbourhood Creation Project. Click here to see the amalgamated neighbourhoods in Fort Erie.

"Located in the Niagara Peninsula's southwestern corner where Lake Erie enters the Niagara River, Fort Erie offers the best of both worlds blending small-city living with the convenience of two large metropolitan areas, Toronto and Buffalo, just a short drive away.  ... Fort Erie's colourful heritage, unique geography and modern city services make us an attractive year-round home for approximately 30,000 people and seasonal home to 10,000 more who flock to beachfront properties for the summer."
