Community Wellbeing Survey

In 2014, we partnered with the Canadian Index of Wellbeing (CIW) at the University of Waterloo to conduct the first-ever Victoria Capital Region Community Wellbeing Survey. The study invited a random sample of 10 per cent of the region’s households to participate and utilized the CIW’s framework to assess residents’ community vitality, democratic engagement, education, environment, healthy populations, leisure & culture, living standards, and time use. The result was a snapshot of the overall wellbeing of Capital Region residents. Data from the study was used in the 2014 Victoria’s Vital Signs report (LINK TO POST) as well as the following two editions.
