Community Wellbeing Survey


A Conversation About What Matters To You

During the months of May and June 2014, we are partnering with the Canadian Index of Wellbeing and the Capital Regional District to conduct an anonymous Community Wellbeing Survey. 

More than 18,000 randomly selected households in our region are being invited to comment on their quality of life. Quality of life encompasses much more than economic considerations and the Community Wellbeing Survey takes into account the full range of social, health, environmental, and economic concerns of citizens. We want to know how residents in our communities are really doing.

The Capital Regional District and the Victoria Foundation are partners in this initiative, and researchers with the Canadian Index of Wellbeing at the University of Waterloo are collecting and analyzing all of the responses for us. The more people who participate the better. Survey respondents will help the CRD to improve services and will help the Victoria Foundation to better understand where the greatest needs are so that financial assistance to worthy charities can be directed in the best way.

The information collected will help shape services and policies in our communities for many years to come. Thank you to all participants for lending your voice to this important initiative, and for helping to improve our community!
