Below is a collection of research, articles and other reports that inform and help us in our work on Vital Signs, Creating Vital Solutions and community discussions.

This section continues to evolve and grow, providing regular updates on topics including charitable giving, housing, equity and employment to name a few.  Our intent here is to leverage local knowledge to help in our work of supporting our communities with a guide post of finding fundable solutions for local systemic issues.

If you know of a report or publication that would compliment our collective learning, please contact us

Geo Mapping

The following links are individual maps, that use Low Income – After tax Low Income Measure (LIM-AT) data, and housing assets which were collected through local partner data.  The following maps were developed to demonstrate where resources are in relation to those in need, and the gaps, or duplication of services.  Further work will be done on these maps over the next year as we identify further resources. We thank the United Way of Oakville, for assisting us in the costs to produce these maps.
