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 support action towards improving our quality of life. Thirty community foundations across Canada are participating in the Vital Signs program in 2017.
The Community Foundation of Mississauga is very pleased to be participating in the national Vital Signs program.
Mississauga’s Vital Signs 2017 measures the quality of life in our community, identifies trends and shares opportunities for action. Mississauga’s strengths and most pressing needs are examined across ten distinct indicators: safety, health and wellness, learning, housing, getting started in our community, arts and culture, environment, the gap between the rich and the poor, work, and belonging and leadership. We are happy to launch the newest version of this report in October 2017.
The report helps our community identify where we are doing well and where we want to target philanthropy for greatest impact. It is our hope that the information in this year’s report will inform, inspire, and generate conversation. Please consider what you might do to build a strong and vital Mississauga for all of us now, as well as our children and all who follow us.
We last released Vital Signs in 2015. You can download a copy of this document by clicking the image.
