Windsor Essex 2017 Vital Signs Report Released

The Windsor Essex 2017 Vital Signs report has been released to the community. Our community responded that we are doing OK when it comes to the quality of life in Windsor-Essex and identified priorities to address moving forward.

“We found survey responses to be quite positive with many reflecting that Windsor-Essex is on the right track within most areas.” stated Lisa Kolody, Executive Director.

“The Vital Signs report is an excellent resource that we use throughout the year to guide our grantmaking at the WECF. It outlines where the strengths and needs exist in Windsor-Essex, identifies local priorities, and it informs where our funding will provide the greatest impact locally.  More and more local agencies are incorporating Vital Signs data in their program planning.” – Lisa Kolody, Executive Director

Vital Signs is a community resource that builds knowledge, informs grantmaking, and identifies strategic priorities in our community. It is the only community report published annually that incorporates community feedback with local, provincial and national data. Learn more about out what makes Windsor-Essex a great place to live, work, play and grow.

There are 32 Canadian community foundations participating in the Vital Signs program this year, with 80 community foundations participating globally. This is the fifth year the WindsorEssex Community Foundation has published a Vital Signs report.

You can read the report here Windsor Essex 2017 Vital Signs Report. Paper copies will be distributed as an insert in the Windsor Star on Saturday, October 7th.

Vital Signs is a national program led by community foundations and coordinated by Community Foundations of Canada that leverages local knowledge to measure the vitality of our communities and supports action towards improving our quality of life. Started by the Toronto Community Foundation in 2001, today over 100 communities across Canada and around the world use Vital Signs to mobilize the power of community knowledge for local impact.

The WindsorEssex Community Foundation, originally founded in 1983 as Heritage Windsor, is a perpetual community trust for philanthropic purposes. It exists to manage donors’ legacy funds and make grants to support local community programs. Through grant making activities, the WECF is able to establish partnerships to assist a broad range of community organizations. Learn more here.
