What are the issues facing our community? How are we responding? Is there a way you can make a difference? These are just some of the questions tackled by Vital Signs, a national program of Community Foundations of Canada. This biennial report measures the vitality of our community by examining a variety of issues that are significant to our well-being and quality of life. This information is integral to helping us continue to build London as a Smart & Caring Community. Guiding the Foundation's granting like a roadmap, Vital Signs provides the Foundation with the in-depth knowledge to make informed decisions about how to distribute our funds and direct our granting. Inspiring civic engagement, providing focus for public debate and informing community members of our greatest needs, Vital Signs is one of the many ways London Community Foundation drives change.
Our 2014 Vital Signs report covers health and wellness, environment, learning, getting started, housing, and the gap between rich and poor. However, our granting is not limited to these areas. We also consider initiatives that touch on arts & culture, belonging and leadership, economy, work, safety, transportation, food and youth.
