The Regent Park Focus Youth Media Arts Centre is a non-profit group in Toronto, Ontario's Regent Park neighbourhood.[1] Launched in 1990 in conjunction with Toronto's Centre for Addiction and Mental Health and the Government of Ontario, the group offers media training programs for youth in the neighbourhood,[1] including programs in television and radio production, photography, magazine publishing, new media and social marketing.

The group's radio stream originally produced a weekly radio series, Catch da Flava, which was podcasted and aired on Toronto radio station CKLN-FM. After CKLN's broadcasting license was revoked by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission in 2011, the station moved its operations to Regent Park Focus,[2] briefly becoming an Internet radio service before ceasing operations permanently in December.[3] Regent Park Focus subsequently launched a successor service, Radio Regent, in January 2012.[3]
