Here’s how you can have your say on issues like housing and healthcare in Victoria


The Victoria Foundation has officially launched the 17th Vital Signs citizen survey, which will create the basis for the 2022 Vital Signs report—and they’re asking residents of Greater Victoria to have their say on the most important issues in the region. 

If you’re interested in having your say, you can fill out the 2022 survey online here.

What does community mean to you?

The theme for the 2022 survey puts a focus on community, which is something that is vital to everyone across Greater Victoria.

“The Victoria Foundation’s vision is to create a vibrant, caring community for all. The annual community check-up provides us a gauge of how we’re doing, and what we need to work on as a community.” said Sandra Richardson, Victoria Foundation Chief Executive Officer.

“We have shortened and further streamlined the survey in 2022, and I encourage you to have your opinion heard!”

There’s also a chance to win prizes just for completing the survey, including a $100 Bay Centre gift card, one-night stay at the Magnolia Hotel, tickets to a HarbourCats game and more!

The survey also asks Victorians to weigh in on the 12 Vital Signs issue areas, which include:

• Arts & Culture
• Belonging & Engagement
• Economy
• Environmental Sustainability
• Getting Started in our Community
• Health & Wellness
• Housing
• Learning
• Safety
• Sports & Recreation
• Standard of Living
• Transportation

All responses will be compiled into the 2022 Victoria’s Vital Signs report, which will be released this fall.

The report will be a combination of public opinion and statistics that will provide a snapshot of livability and wellbeing in Greater Victoria.

The Vital Signs survey runs until July 4th, and you can fill it out here.

Victoria’s Vital Signs was launched in 2006 as an initiative of the Victoria Foundation’s 70th anniversary, with this year’s sponsor being Coast Capital.

According to last year’s results, 3,757 residents completed survey and Greater Victoria’s overall Quality of Life grade was a B.
