The 2016 Regina Area Vital Signs report launched on Tuesday, October 4 at the Regina and District Food Bank at 9:30 AM.
The report was circulated in the LeaderPost on October 5th and print copies are available by contacting the SSCF.
Vital Signs is an annual check-up conducted by community foundations to measure the vitality of communities across Canada. It gathers and publishes data on significant social and economic trends and assigns grades in areas critical to quality of life. Find out more.
The annual Vital Signs reports promote awareness of community issues and are used by communities for social planning, by citizens and philanthropists to identify community needs and strengths, and by community foundations to inform their grantmaking and leadership activities.
Watch this CTV Regina clip to learn what it's all about!
The report calls our community to action by inviting leaders in the community, in business, government, non-profits and charities to begin Vital Conversations about how we collaborate to create a more vital community. Contact the Foundation to get involved and to discuss innovative ways that Vital Signs can be used to help your organization address significant local issues.
