Smith A., Saewyc E., Albert M., MacKay L., Northcott M., & the McCreary Centre Society (2007). Against the Odds: A Profile of Marginalized and Street-Involved Youth in BC. Vancouver, BC: McCreary Centre Society.

The lives of marginalized and street-involved youth are complex and filled with challenges, dangers and opportunities. This report summarizes the results of surveys with marginalized youth in the North, Interior, Fraser Valley, Vancouver Island and Vancouver. It also serves as a follow-up to McCreary’s 2000 health survey of marginalized and street-involved youth (street youth) in six communities across BC. It looks at many of the same issues, considers emerging trends and health challenges and, by comparing the results with those of the 2000 survey, reflects on what progress has been made over the past six years.
