The neighbourhoods were identified through the Neighbourhood Creation Project (Ontario Early Years Niagara Region, Niagara Region Public Helath 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 McMasterUniversity. Base features for the map were created by the PREP Unit, Public Health. The neighbourhoods are outlined in brown. The Data Analysis Coordinator identified that the Niagara Falls neighbourhoods had historical precedents and the goal of the project was to replicate the existing boundaries as closely as possible, using the new dissemination areas. Statistics Canada defines a dissemination area as a relatively stable geographic unit composed of one or more blocks. It is the smallest standard geographic area for which all census data are disseminated. Using the new dissemination areas resulted in slight shifts in the neighbourhoods that comprise Niagara Falls. Reports from 2006 onwards will reflect these shifts.

"Niagara Falls (is) a city in the Regional Municipality of Niagara, southeastern Ontario, Canada, (and)
a port on the Niagara River opposite Niagara Falls, New York. The city overlooks the Horseshoe, or
Canadian Falls cataract of Niagara Falls; the crescent-shaped cataract is 54 M (177ft) high and carries
nine times more water than its United States counterpart. Niagara Falls is an enormously popular
tourist destination, and it also serves as a major source of electricity for Ontario. ...The city is connected
to the U.S. side of the falls by several bridges, including the Rainbow, Whirlpool, and Queenston-Lewiston bridges. Prinicipal manufactures include processed food, abrasives, chemicals, automotive parts,
metal and paper goods, and wines and alcholic beverages. Logistics, i.e. storage and warehousing
and information technology/call centres are also important to the city's economy."
