Each fall, Canadian community foundations from the Atlantic to the Pacific prepare local report cards for, and about, their communities. Like an annual check-up, each Vital Signs report looks at how one community is doing across many aspects of quality of life. What makes for ‘good’ quality of life varies from one community to another. Each Vital Signs report reflects this diversity, tracking the measures that are important to its community. On October 5, 2010, Vital Signs reports were issued in 15 communities: Calgary, Hamilton, Kingston, London, Lunenburg County, Medicine Hat, Montreal, Ottawa, Red Deer, Saint John, Sudbury, Toronto, Vancouver, Victoria, and Waterloo Region. For more detail, see our local reports. Alongside diverse local priorities, runs the thread of shared concerns – issues that are important to all Canadians. To capture these issues, Community Foundations of Canada produces Canada’s Vital Signs, a web-based report focused on national issues. Within each Vital Signs issue area, an indicator is chosen to provide a snapshot of how our communities are doing across the country.
