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, all four of the neighbourhoods in Niagara-on-the-Lake 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 Niagara-on-the-Lake.

"The Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake is located in the northeast corner of the Regional Municipality of Niagara bounded by the Niagara River, Lake Ontario, the City of St. Catharines, and the City of Niagara Falls and occupies 31,131 acres (or 12,599 hectares). Niagara-on-the-Lake was formed as a result of the introduction of regional government to the area on January 1, 1970. It comprises the whole of the former Town of Niagara and the former Township of Niagara including the district heritage communities of Virgil, St. David's, Queenston, Homer and McNab. ... Strategically located on the 43rd parallel, the Town of Niagara-on- the-Lake lies on the same latitude as Florence and Cannes and is the tourism heart of the Ontario wine region which stretches along the south shore of Lake Ontario from Stoney Creek to Niagara Falls."
