The Community Foundation of Southeastern Alberta’s 2023 Vital Signs report has taken a deep dive into Housing, Health & Wellness, Work & Economy, Connection & Belonging, Creative & Active Living, Public Safety, and Food Security. The information provided in this year’s Vital Signs report provides a focus for conversations with residents, businesses, community organizations, universities and colleges, and government leaders to take action and direct resources where they will have the greatest impact.

“This year’s Vital Signs report demonstrates the importance of community knowledge and leadership in addressing the unique social challenges that Southeastern Alberta faces. This ground-up approach puts the needs of our community at the heart of how we build communities where everyone belongs.”   – Niki Gray, Executive Director of CFSEA

The Community Foundation of Southeastern Alberta’s 2023 Vital Signs report is part of a global program that has engaged more than 100 communities in Canada and around the world to mobilize the power of community knowledge for greater local impact. Andrea Dicks, President of Community Foundations of Canada, notes, “Today, we see evidence from coast to coast to coast that many people are being left behind. Programs such as Vital Signs, with its local data and community-driven knowledge, help us make bolder and better decisions that ensure everyone has the support and opportunity to flourish in Medicine Hat and Southeastern Alberta.”
