WHAT IS VITAL SIGNS?

West Vancouver's Vital Signs is part of a Community Foundations of Canada program that sees Vital Signs reports published each year in approximately 50 communities. The Vital Signs report is a periodic check up that measures the quality of life in Canadian communities, identifies trends, and shares opportunities for action.

WHAT DOES IT MEASURE?

The following issue areas will be included in the analysis:

  • Arts & Culture
  • Belonging
  • Environment
  • Volunteerism & Civic Engagement
  • Diversity & Inclusivity
  • Health & Wellness
  • Housing
  • Learning
  • Safety
  • Vulnerability

HOW DOES IT WORK?

In addition to detailed statistical analysis and data mining, the Community Foundation will engage the community in a consultative process that will provide a subjective sense of our community's health as it relates to each of these issue areas.

HOW IS IT USED?

Experience in other communities has shown that the Vital Signs Report is an important discussion piece for the community and provides much-needed clarity around the perceived issues facing our citizens. It invariably becomes a key tool for many different groups working for the betterment of our community.
