Newfoundland and Labrador's Vital Signs provides a comprehensive, reader-friendly look at how our province's communities are faring in key quality-of-life areas. To mark the 150th anniversary of Canada's confederation in 2017 and to coincide with Community Foundaitons of Canada's national Vital Signs focus on belonging, this year’s report focuses on the connection between issues like crime and safety, the gap between rich and poor, and mental health and addictions and sense of belonging in this province.
The report will be available for download on this page the morning of Thursday, October 19. You can also pick up a hard copy in your local newspaper: Vital Signs will be published in The Telegram and The Western Star on Saturday, October 21, and will be released in other SaltWire community newspapers the week following.
