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 support action towards improving our collective quality of life.

 Sunshine Coast Community Foundation is pleased to introduce a special Vital Focus on ‘Our vulnerable communities’. You may download a copy of the report from the link above or below.

Our reports are a snapshot of our community that present our challenges and celebrate our accomplishments. The Foundation published its first three full Vital Signs reports in 2009, 2011, and 2014. In the years 2010 and 2012, we published two-page updates on information relevant to those years and in 2016 we published a special report on ‘A community perception of where we live’. Links to our new 2017 Report and our past Reports are available on the bar above.

We hope that this 2017 Report will build on the work started with past Vital Signs reports by continuing to stimulate the Sunshine Coast community to take action to make the Coast the best it can be.

In partnership with the Coast Resource Centre, the Foundation convened a "Vital Conversation on Belonging" in October 2017. The report from that workshop is available for download below.
