The site of a multi-year redevelopment of public and private housing and social infrastructure, Regent Park’s population is roughly equivalent to Moss Park, but with 40% fewer households due to a greater presence of families. The neighbourhood has the largest household size in the Core with a high presence of children in all age ranges and nearly triple the Core average of single parents. This neighbourhood has the second-lowest average household income and the highest social assistance rate in the Core. It is also the most multilingual neighbourhood, with over 50% of residents speaking a language other than English at home. Large cohorts of immigrants from Bangladesh and China have arrived in recent years.
