A collaboration between Environics Institute and Apathy is Boring, the Canadian Millennials Social Values Study reveals a diverse population when it comes to Canada's millennial cohort (those born between 1980 and 1995). The innovative study based its findings not only on demographic data like age, location, and socio-economic factors, but also took into account millennials' diverse social value systems. These systems help make sense of the different and sometimes contradictory stereotypes that tend to follow Canadian millennials.
Canadian Millennials are the most diverse population in our country's history and represent on average one person in four. Take a minute to think about that. With support from the Laidlaw Foundation, we were able to develop this report to provide municipalities with practical tools to increase and support youth engagement.
