Newfoundland and Labrador's Vital Signs

Lay Summary 

Newfoundland and Labrador's Vital Signs report is a comprehensive, reader-friendly look at how the communities of the province are faring in key quality-of-life areas. The goal of the report is to provide critical information that can help community members set priorities and identify opportunities for action.

Newfoundland & Labrador’s VitalSigns® is more than just a report. It is the beginning of an ongoing process of discussions and research about the health of the province across several key areas. The Community Foundation of NL and the Harris Centre facilitate conversations with key individuals and groups in preparation for the annual report. These conversations inform additional research in areas that may need a closer look.

The Vital Signs reports deliver easy-to-read statistics and stories on quality of life in our province to 100,000 homes, business, and organizations across Newfoundland and Labrador, including all public libraries, through our partnership with TC Media. In today’s challenging economic landscape, putting relevant, accessible research and data into the hands of community leaders – from the boardroom table to the kitchen table – is even more critical.

NL's Vital Signs is produced in partnership between the Community Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador and the Leslie Harris Centre for Regional Policy and Development at Memorial University. The Vital Signs program is coordinated nationally by Community Foundations of Canada.
