2015 Performance Measurement Report

This report marks the tenth year of reporting results to the public, and the first year reporting nationally as opposed to the previous provincial-level benchmarking. From across Canada, there are 10 single-tier and 5 upper-tier municipalities (including Niagara), who have contributed to this report.

The 2015 MBNCanada Performance Measurement Report includes 156 measures representing 36 municipal services. It is important to recognize that each municipality has different responsibilities for service delivery and as such, may not report in all service areas. In addition, each municipality has unique characteristics related to socio-demographics, geographic location, and population as well as various influencing factors that affect their results. The majority of measures display 2013, 2014 and 2015 data wherever possible; however, there are instances where only one or two years of data is available.

The Report is meant to share results in the spirit of learning from one another. It does not provide an evaluation of, or an explanation for, each municipality’s results; however, there may be instances where an explanation is provided in order to support the results. Questions about specific results should be directed to the respective municipality through the Municipal Lead or the MBNCanada Program Manager.

Join us online for this presentation that will speak to the Dementia-Friendly Canada project, including: an introduction to the concept of dementia-friendly communities, a review of existing dementia-friendly communities initiatives in Canada, and an overview of project activities to date and next steps. A dementia-friendly community is a place where people living with dementia, as well as their care partners and families, feel welcomed, acknowledged and included. Many Alzheimer Societies across Canada have been successful in creating these communities. The Dementia-Friendly Canada project will expand these initiatives across Ontario, B.C., Manitoba and Saskatchewan, and invest in training and outreach programs to enable more communities to support Canadians living with dementia.

Workplace Wellness Series for Educators: Finding Your Happy @ ECCDC
Apr 7 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm

An Introduction to the 16 Guidelines to Transform Your Life and Relationships

Join Elizabeth Skronski for this new session. Many of us search all our life for our Holy Grail to happiness and well-being, yet the answer often lies within us. Drawing on proven techniques from modern psychology, ethics, cognitive behavioural approaches, and centuries-old Eastern philosophy, 16 Guidelines is a holistic approach to increase our emotional resilience, confidence, and overall well-being.

This workshop is a taster to a two-day workshop that looks at the neuroscience behind happiness and introduces “The 16 Guidelines“ which provide practical tools for a more meaningful, fulfilled life. The idea behind the 16 guidelines is simple: to change the way we experience the world, we transform the way we think, act, and relate to others to find meaning. This workshop will teach techniques, including mindfulness, that can be shared with others, to improve personal relationships at home, reduce stress in the workplace, and overall increase your sense of happiness and well-being.

Registration fee includes all session materials and nutrition break.

This workshop is hosted by the Early Childhood Community Development Centre.
