Here’s how you can have your say on quality of life in Greater Victoria


If you’re looking to have your voice heard when it comes to issues related to quality of life in the capital region, now’s your chance!

The Victoria Foundation’s 19th annual Vital Signs Survey is open now, and they’re looking for your opinion.

The Vital Signs citizen survey asks Greater Victorians to weigh in on 12 Vital Signs issues related to quality of life.

These issue areas include housing, safety, health & wellness, belonging and engagement—just to name a few.

This year, residents can fill out a short or long version of the survey, which can be found online—survey responses are used to produce the comprehensive Victoria’s Vital Signs report, which combines public opinion and statistics to provide a snapshot of livability and well-being in Greater Victoria.

Last year, the Victoria Foundation had the highest response rate in Vital Signs history with 5,319 survey completes! They’re looking to hear from those voices again and more as they enter the 19th year of the Vital Signs program.

The 2024 Vital Signs report will be released in the fall.

The survey just opened, and will run until Friday, May 31st—don’t miss the chance to have your say while you still can.

Also, by filling out the survey, you could win one of three $100 gift cards to Country Grocer! You can also double your chances of winning by filling out the long form of the survey.

“Victoria’s Vital Signs provides the community with information that sparks action to improve our region,” said Sandra Richardson, Victoria Foundation CEO.

“There is a significant amount of complex and integrated challenges in our community, and we hope the theme for 2024 and information collected will help us identify solutions for our region to help our grandkids and future generations.”

Victoria’s Vital Signs was launched in 2006, and is a community check-up conducted by community foundations across Canada that measures the vitality of our communities and identifies significant trends in a range of areas critical to quality of life. Vital Signs is coordinated nationally by Community Foundations of Canada.
