Community partners are invited to join Niagara Connects for one or more of 12 working sessions in January, 2019 to review and modernize the Indicators and Measures for each Living in Niagara report Sector.
The Living in Niagara – 2017 report was released 1 year ago. Now is the time to begin building the 2020 version! The report weaves data and knowledge together, to describe quality of life across the 12 Living in Niagara Sectors. The Sectors align with the Social Determinants of Health; their combined data provides a holistic picture of socio-economic progress in Niagara.
Report construction methodology has evolved since its inception in 2008. Indicators and Measures in the 2020 report will be updated to reflect current practice and new knowledge within each Sector.
A community builds what is called social capital when its citizens have a well-developed sense of civic responsibility and generosity that is expressed through their voluntarism and involvement in the community. Read more about the Community Belonging Sector here.
