What is Vital Signs?
Vital Signs® is a check-up conducted by community foundations across Canada measuring community vitality.

The report identifies significant needs and trends by combining quantitative and qualitative data, including insights from community members about a range of issue areas critical to quality of life. It is a snapshot in time of our community; its strengths, gaps, and opportunities for our future.

Our community experienced dramatic change and challenges since Winnipeg’s first Vital Signs® report, released in 2017. The 2022 report’s goal is to mobilize the power of community knowledge for greater local impact, providing insight about how best to support Winnipeggers.

Vital Signs® is a national program led by individual community foundations and coordinated by Community Foundations of Canada. The information contained in Vital Signs® is for everyone.

The Vital Signs® website, winnipegvitalsigns.org, contains all the data collected, including a technical report with secondary data, a copy of the survey, survey results, and more. We share this in the spirit of open data and a commitment to sharing community knowledge.

We hope you find the report and the data available useful and meaningful.
