Vital Signs

What is Vital Signs?

Vital Signs is Canada’s most extensive community-driven data program. Spearheaded by Community Foundations of Canada, the Squamish Community Foundation produces Vital Signs reports every three years and hosts a series of “Vital Conversations” throughout the year.

Vital Signs uses local knowledge to measure the vitality of a community and support action towards improving collective quality of life. Local data gathered through the program is used to support evidence-based, locally-relevant solutions to improve the quality of life at the community level. Vital Signs aims to inspire civic engagement, to provide focus for public debate, and to help a range of actors take action where they will have the greatest impact.

Squamish Vital Signs Reports

The 2023 Squamish Vital Signs report is now available. The SCF would like to thank the Vital Signs Steering Committee and volunteers, the community members who provided valuable insight, and our sponsors: Squamish Savings, Squamish Insurance, and Leith Wheeler Investment Counsel Ltd.
