Delta Community Profile

This comprehensive community profile focuses on the community of Delta and breaks down data into five neighbourhoods: Ladner, North Delta East, North Delta West, Sunshine Hills and Tsawwassen. The profile includes information on:

  • population (demographics, growth trends, languages spoken
  • economic factors (income, unemployement rates, education, housing)
  • social factors (homelessness, family structure, childhood vulnerability, causes of death)
  • data on calls handled by bc211, the 24/7 multilingual social service help line that United Way funds

 

Neighbourhood-specific research like this helps not only United Way, but also helps municipalities, school districts and other social service organizations plan for the future. In 2015, United Way invested $570,000 dollars in Delta funding 28 organizations that deliver 35 programs and services to residents. Programs and services supported by United Way include early childhood development, after-school programs, senior support, refugee support, and food security.
