On Monday, the Community Foundations of Canada launched its new national Vital Signs report. The report kicks off Vital Signs week happening across the country. Vital Signs is a national program led by local community foundations and coordinated by Community Foundations of Canada that leverages community knowledge to measure the vitality of our communities and support action towards improving our quality of life.
For the first time since the inception of the national Vital Signs program, the Prince George Community Foundation is releasing its own local report: Vital Signs Prince George: Telling Our Story. The report provides statistical data in a pleasing and easy to understand format, shedding light on four aspects of life in our community: People and Work, Health and Well-Being, The Gap Between Rich and Poor, and Housing. It presents a selection of data to provide an overview of Prince George’s “vital signs” in four indicator areas. Vital Signs is a tool for community practitioners and citizens alike to get a sense of our particular community characteristics.
Teresa Saunders, Prince George Community Foundation president is proud of the work that has been done to bring this report to fruition and believes it will assist service organizations, local government, and the foundation itself in understanding and supporting the needs identified in the four areas the report focuses on. “As an organization that is focused on giving back to our community it is important that we seek to understand where the areas of greatest need are. With this in mind, we are pleased to present our first Vital Signs Report, a community check-up that measures the vitality of our city identifies concerns, and supports action on issues that are critical to our quality of life.”
The report will be launched on October 20th at 11:30 am at the Coast Inn of the North, 770 Brunswick St. The public are welcome to attend and listen to Catherine Pennington, PGCF Board member and Vital Signs Project Lead who will present the highlights of the report and discuss its importance to our community and the way it can be used to make Prince George an even better place to live – for all.
For further information, please call project lead, Catherine Pennington, 403-835-2129 or Board president, Teresa Saunders at 250-981-1709.
