Church-Yonge is the second-largest neighbourhood by population in the Core. It is home to the most couples without children and single-person households in the Core due perhaps to Ryerson University, the Village and the high-rise built form of the area. The majority of residents are renters and nearly half are spending more than 30% of their income on shelter. Though below the city average, there are more people who are unemployed here than in any other neighbourhood in the Core. Church Wellesley Village includes an organization called the Church Wellesley Neighbourhood Association as well as a Business Improvement Area named the Church Wellesley Village Business Improvement Area.

On May 31, I raised the flag outside City Hall to mark the beginning of Pride Month. This is the time to celebrate Two-Spirit, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer love, culture, and history. Pride Month is also a time of reflection, acknowledging the challenges that our communities face to be proud and to be true to their identity.
