Vital Signs

Whistler’s Community-Driven Data Program

Whistler’s Vital Signs uses local knowledge to measure the vitality of our community and support action.

Local data gathered through the program is used to support evidence-based, locally relevant solutions to improve the quality of life at the community level.

Whistler’s Vital Signs aims to inspire civic engagement, to provide focus for public debate, and to help a range of actors take action and direct resources where they will have the greatest impact.

Locally Relevant Solutions Through a Global Looking Glass

In 2017, Community Foundations of Canada started to align our national data sets with Agenda 2030, the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDG framework allows Whistler to measure local data against common global indicators.
