Proportion of Youth Who Have a Very/Somewhat Strong Sense of Belonging to Their Community

Older youth are less likely than younger youth to report that they have a very or somewhat strong sense of belonging to their local community – both among immigrant youth and Canadian born youth.  Eighty-eight percent of immigrant youth and 82% of Canadian youth aged 12 to 14 years reported this was the case – compared with 63% of immigrant youth and Canadian born youth aged 18 to 19 years.
