What is Vital Signs?
Vital Signs is a national program led by community foundations and coordinated by Community Foundations of Canada that leverages local knowledge to measure the vitality of our communities and identify significant trends in a range of areas to support action toward improving our collective quality of life.
How is it Used?
Vital Signs aims to inspire civic engagement and provide focus for public debate in our communities. Vital Signs reports and Vital Conversations are used by residents, businesses, community organizations, universities and colleges, and government leaders to take action and direct resources where they will have the greatest impact.
