Vital Signs is Canada’s most extensive community-driven data program.
Vital Signs is Canada’s most extensive community-driven data program. Spearheaded by Community Foundations of Canada and led by community foundations in Canada and around the world, Vital Signs uses local knowledge to measure the vitality of a community and support action towards improving collective quality of life. Local data gathered through the program is used to support evidence-based, locally-relevant solutions to improve the quality of life at the community level.
CVCF also plays a coordinating role in bringing the sector together, hosting gatherings for sector leadership to promote sharing of information, support for each other, and collaboration amongst organizations. CVCF also has many resources available to share.
The 2016 and 2018 Vital Signs reports were developed in partnership with the United Way of Central and North Vancouver Island, the Comox Valley Social Planning Society, and North Island College. Thank you to everyone who made these possible, including local agencies, key experts, residents, and sponsors. Please download the reports, and share with others.
