This is an outstanding city.
But you don't just take.
You've got to build.

Toronto’s Vital Signs Report

The Report is compiled from current statistics and studies, identifying progress we should be proud of and challenges that need to be addressed.

It is a consolidated snapshot of the trends and issues affecting the quality of life in our city and each of the interconnected issue areas is critical to the wellbeing of Toronto and its residents.

The Report aims to inspire civic engagement and provide focus for public debate in our communities and around the world. It is used by residents, businesses, community organizations, universities and colleges, and government departments. In addition, the Report is a model now being used by cities around the world.

For us, the Report provides a framework and a jumping off point for our grantmaking and city-building efforts. Philanthropists rely on Toronto’s Vital Signs to provide direction for their charitable giving in Toronto.
