Since 2007, The Kitchener and Waterloo Community Foundation and the Cambridge & North Dumfries Community Foundation have strived to inspire civic engagement, provide focus for public debate and connect philanthropic activity with the areas of greatest need. In our previous reports we analyzed our community across 11 different interconnected areas. This year we build on our most recent (2010) Vital Signs report and dive deeper into four priority areas: Belonging and Leadership, Arts and Culture, Getting Started and Health and Wellness.
To identify the most useful indicators in each of the 4 key areas of Waterloo Region's Vital Signs examined in the 2012 report, we established a resource panel of experts knowledgeable about research methods and our Region. The expert panel provides leadership and direction regarding the data and indicators chosen for the report as well as the methodology.
