Part One. This year, Statistics Canada has released new data on the social and economic well-being of cities and towns across Canada. This is part one in a series about Lindsay’s 12 lowest income neighbourhood zones and how they are coping in a challenging economic environment.
This is a series about the challenge and burden of living on a low income in Lindsay, but it’s also a series about hope and action. In each of these designated areas, there is a community anchor of some kind – be it a school, a business, or an institution that helps in some way.

Kawartha Lakes Food Source (KLFS) is calling on all amateur artists within Kawartha Lakes to enter its first-ever art competition for their special occasion fundraising cards.
When Wendy Kane began her career at Ross Memorial Hospital, Pierre Trudeau was prime minister – not his son, Justin – and Bill Davis was premier of Ontario. As well, all Canadian road signs turned metric this same year and the Toronto Eaton Centre opened its doors for the first time.
Data from Trillium Lakelands District School Board shows where area students most want to go to college and university – and what they’re interested in studying.
