The purpose of Winnipeg’s Vital Signs is to inform, stimulate conversations, and encourage action, both in the community and at The Winnipeg Foundation. This is the first full Vital Signs that The Foundation has published and it’s just the beginning of our work.

We hope that Vital Signs inspires you.

10 things you can do inspired by Vital Signs
