Past Reports

Vancouver Foundation began Vital Signs reporting in 2006, as part of our ongoing commitment to understanding the priorities of residents.

Vital Signs® is a community check-up conducted by Community Foundations across Canada that measures the vitality of our communities and identifies significant trends in a range of areas critical to quality of life.

Vital Signs is coordinated nationally by Community Foundations of Canada and with special thanks to the Toronto Foundation for developing and sharing the Vital Signs concept.
