Vital Signs Community Report

Compilation of the 2023 Vital Signs Report is underway! You can help by completing our short survey here. The report will be published in October, 2023.

Vital Signs is a biennial report that measures the well-being of all of our communities in the South Okanagan Similkameen—from Summerland, down to Osoyoos and over to Princeton—using data and information on everything from health, the environment, the economy and more.

Vital Signs is a useful tool for community organizations, charities, municipalities and volunteers to learn about issues in our community that need our attention.

How is the data organized?

Our Foundation provides data for its Vital Signs reporting in the following issue areas that have been established by Community Foundations of Canada:

  • Our Community
  • Sustainable Cities & Communities
  • No Poverty/Zero Poverty
  • Peace
  • Justice & Strong Institutions
  • Quality Education / Gender
  • Decent Work & Economic Growth
  • Good Health & Well Being
  • Culture & Arts, and Housing

These issue areas are aligned with the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals.
