CONNECT & ENGAGE 2018
We ALL belong here . . . but not all of us FEEL a sense of belonging.
The Community Foundation of Whistler’s Vital Signs initiative uses local knowledge to measure the vitality of our community, create conversations and encourage collective action.
We believe that the vitality and resiliency of our community is linked to the strength of our social connections and support in the community. People who feel a sense of belonging and who are connected to their community are physically and mentally healthier.
Whistler's Vital Signs Connect + Engage report is a full update of our Whistler's Vital Signs Uncovering Whistler 2016 report. It also continues to explore how community members connect at a personal, neighbourhood and community level.
The Whistler Vital Signs initiative aims to gather community knowledge, enhance community connections and encourage participation in community life.
In 2018, in addition to updating Whistler's Vital Signs®, we are exploring how individuals build and experience connections and belonging in our community.

ENGAGING, BUILDING, CELEBRATING
The Community Foundation of Whistler and the Whistler Centre for Sustainability are partnering for Vital Connections in the community.
Vital Connections combines the Whistler Vital Signs initiative with the 2018 Whistler Resilient Streets program.
The partnership brings together the community engagement element of Vital Signs with up to $10,000 in micro-grants that are available through the Resilient Streets program to build and celebrate connections in local neighbourhoods in the summer of 2018.
Learn more about Resilient Streets. The last round of grants ended Sept 20th, 2018.
