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.
The Community Foundation of Mississauga is very pleased to be participating in the national Vital Signs program.
Mississauga’s Vital Signs 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 2018.
In order to provide a document with recent data and other important information the Foundation is working with a combination of local partners and the Federal Government. We are committed to current, quality data and are working with Statistics Canada to receive the new 2016 Canadian Census data as it becomes available throughout 2017. We are excited to present the residents of Mississauga with a brand new vibrant document that truly represents this growing and diverse city.
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 the 2018 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 will update this site when our new Vital Signs report becomes available in 2018.
We last released Vital Signs in 2015. You can download a copy of this document by clicking the image below.
