Think you know Salt Spring Island? For the past six months, the Salt Spring Island Foundation has been compiling VitalSigns®, a compelling report that looks under the covers of our little island and reveals some fascinating facts.
The 24-page Vital Signs report explores 12 areas of special interest, including arts and culture, health and wellness, housing, the environment, seniors, work and the economy and more. It is being launched alongside reports from more than 35 other community foundations across the country participating in Vital Signs in 2017.
Vital Signs is a national program coordinated by Community Foundations of Canada that leverages local knowledge to measure the vitality of our communities and support action toward improving our quality of life. Started by the Toronto Foundation in 2001, today close to 100 communities around the world use Vital Signs to mobilize the power of community knowledge for local impact.
