Youth Digital Media Ecologies Project

The Youth Digital Media Ecologies Project is a national research program looking at how 175 youth media production groups in Vancouver, Toronto, and Montreal have shaped the urban ecologies of Canada’s 3 largest cities.  The site includes lists and maps of influential youth media organizations,  their primary objectives, the kind of media they work with, and the diverse range of young people they serve.



Generation Squeeze began as a University of British Columbia project researching generational inequality in Canada. With the support of early funders like the United Way, Vancouver Foundation, Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, Mowafaghian Foundation and Vancity Credit Union, we became an awareness campaign. After years of raising awareness about the growing squeeze on younger Canadians, we now know awareness isn’t enough.
