The Problems

Mental Health Crisis**: Mental health problems, such as anxiety, depression, and substance abuse, are increasingly prevalent among Canadian youth. Factors such as academic pressure, social media usage, economic stress, and social isolation contribute to the mental health crisis. However, access to mental health services and resources is often limited, particularly in rural and remote areas, leading to challenges in receiving timely and appropriate support.

  • – Housing Affordability**: In many urban centers across Canada, housing affordability has become a significant challenge for young people. Skyrocketing housing prices and stagnant wages make it increasingly difficult for young Canadians to afford homeownership or even rental accommodation. This housing affordability crisis disproportionately affects young adults, particularly those from low-income or marginalized communities, leading to housing instability and homelessness in some cases.
  • – Addressing these critical issues requires the government, civil society, and the private sector to coordinate efforts. Strategies should focus on creating more job opportunities for young people, improving access to mental health services and resources, and implementing policies to address housing affordability. Additionally, investing in education, skills training, and social support systems is crucial for supporting the well-being and future success of youth in Canada.
