Financial worries, difficulties at work or at home, domestic violence, relationship problems, issues around sexual identity, bullying, racism, abuse etc. affect people regardless of where they live. However, there are other difficulties that are primarily associated with living in a rural area such as little or no access to services, lack of public transport, isolation and loneliness.
Vital Signs 2015 ReportOctober 15, 2015
Vital Signs is an annual check-up conducted by community foundations to measure the vitality of communities across Canada. It gathers and publishes data on significant social and economic trends and assigns grades in areas critical to quality of life. The annual Vital Signs reports promote awareness of community issues and are used by communities for social planning, by citizens and philanthropists to identify community needs and strengths, and by community foundations to inform their grant making and leadership activities. The South Saskatchewan Community Foundation is pleased to launch its second annual Vital Signs report in 2015 for the Regina Community.
