The Community Foundation partners with many researchers to produce the Toronto’s Vital Signs® Report. The Report identifies progress we should be proud of and challenges that need to be addressed. It is a consolidated snapshot of the trends and issues affecting the quality of life in our city and each of the interconnected issue areas is critical to the well-being of Toronto and its residents.
The Report is used by residents, businesses, community organizations, universities and colleges, and government departments..
Toronto's Vital Signs® aims to: inspire civic engagement, provide focus for public debate, and guide donors and stakeholders who want to direct their resources to areas of greatest need. Since Toronto’s first Vital Signs publication in 2001, the Report has been adopted by 30 communities across Canada.
