What is Vital Signs?

Vital Signs is an annual community check-up conducted by community foundations across Canada. It provides a comprehensive, reader-friendly look at how our communities are faring in key quality-of-life areas.

This year, 26 community foundations across Canada will launch their own local Vital Signs reports on October 1st. In addition, Community Foundations of Canada will launch a national report that focuses on food.
