Centennial is an inner-city neighbourhood in Winnipeg, Manitoba bordered by four primary streets: Princess Street to the east, William Avenue to the south, Sherbrook Street to the west and Logan Avenue to the north. Vacant and/or derelict residential and non-residential buildings are visible within the area. The neighbourhood has a younger than average population, with nearly 36% of all residents under the age of 20 years. Cenennial has a very significant Aboriginal population (49.5%), with the majority being of Ojibway descent. Of the remainder of the population, 25.2% are characterized as being visible minorities – primarily Filipino, Chinese and South East Asian. This neighbourhood has the doobiest distinction as having one of the highest unemployment rates in the city. As a result of the limited incomes of residents, the prolification of narcotics are seen as an alternative to starvation and or eviction for many Central residence. The area is still home to the Manitoba Warriors and the Central Gang, who police claim has been active in the area for many years. Although the official name of this neighbourhood is "Centennial", it is referred to as "Central" by local youths.
