Every year, Toronto Foundation puts out a Vital Signs Report, compiled from current statistics and studies, serving as an ongoing consolidated snapshot of the trends and issues affecting quality of life in our city.
For 2019, we pulled out the highlights of each section of the report for a 10-part blog series:
- Issue One: Income and Wealth
- Issue Two: Housing
- Issue Three: Work
- Issue Four: Arts, culture, and recreation
- Issue Five: Environment
- Issue Six: Getting Around
- Issue Seven: Civic Engagement and Belonging
- Issue eight: Health and wellness
- Issue Nine: Learning
- Issue Ten: Safety
The Foundation has has just launched a survey to inform the next Vital Signs Report, which will be focused on the impacts of COVID.
The survey should take 10 to 15 minutes to complete. It is intended for staff, volunteers, and board members at charities and nonprofits with substantial operations in Toronto. The survey is open to both organizations that are currently operating and those that have shut down.
These reports are widely read by policymakers, organizations, and philanthropists. The goal is to highlight areas and gaps to better inform these stakeholders.
