2023 Vital Signs Check-up: Let's talk about local food, food waste, and ensure every child is well-nourished.

On Thursday, November 9th, I had the privilege of sitting in on the 10th annual Vital Signs report to the community about the health and well-being of the Edmonton community. This report is a partnership of the Edmonton Community Foundation as well as the Edmonton Social Planning Council, and many other partners. Read on to learn more about their work as well as see some very challenging infographics.

Our 2023 Vital Signs Report is here! Check it out on our report page.

Edmonton Vital Signs® helps identify the status of Edmontonians and the health of the region we live in.

VITAL SIGNS® IS A NATIONAL INITIATIVE conducted by participating community foundations across Canada. The Edmonton Vital Signs® Report identifies the status of aspects of our community. Vital Signs® is also a valuable teaching tool and resource for policymakers and organizations working on the front lines. These groups use Vital Signs® to help inform their decision-making processes.

We partner with the Edmonton Social Planning Council (ESPC) to ensure the information provided by Vital Signs® is accurate. ESPC is an independent social research and analysis organization. They have been operating in Edmonton for more than 75 years. Learn more about the ESPC. We also work with a committee of community experts to ensure the report examines the right issues.

In addition to our annual report, we focus on individual issues periodically throughout the year: Vital Topics.
