The 50 Vital Community Conversations 2019 Report is the most current research report.

The South Saskatchewan Community Foundation (SSCF) kickstarted its 50th anniversary with a unique 50 Vital Community Conversations initiative. The early 2019 Conversations incorporated widespread interest involving nearly 2,000 individuals in 56 unique community-based conversations, led by 47 registered charities across southern Saskatchewan.

The research analysis of the reports submitted by the host organizations was conducted by Dr. Iryna Khovrenkov, an economist with research interests in philanthropic foundations and charitable giving, social finance and applied microeconomics, from the University of Regina. Dr. Khovrenkov’s review of the final reports from the conversations shares evidence to support the issues identified by communities. The report also includes inspiring examples of programs in action. 

Dr. Khovrenkov highlighted that the top community indicator was “Belonging” and summarized these five key issues which emerged from the Conversations:

  • Sustaining rural communities;
  • Drug abuse and addiction;
  • Safety in communities;
  • Racism towards new immigrants and Indigenous peoples; and
  • Homelessness and affordable housing.
