Our High River Launches Vital Signs

High River AB –  Our High River is pleased to announce the launch of the Vital Signs survey along with the Town of High River and FCSS.

Vital Signs is a community check-up conducted by community foundations across Canada that measures the vitality of our communities, identifies significant trends, and assigns grades across a range of areas critical to quality of life. Vital Signs began in Toronto in 2001 and since then has become a national program used in over 49 communities to start conversations and identify trends to help communities act on local priorities and opportunities.

The Vital Signs program offers more than just a survey. It is a community engagement process that is ongoing, and offers opportunities for citizens to interact throughout the year. In 2016, High River will participate in the full Vital Signs survey. There will also be opportunities for citizens to engage more deeply with Vital Signs through “Vital Focus” and “Vital Conversations.”  Vital Signs is strengths focused and allows citizens to provide feedback on areas to celebrate and improve.  

Citizens of High River are invited to participate in completing the survey from May 24 through to June 24, either online or via paper copy available at FCSS office, Bob Snodgrass Recreation Complex and Town Hall.

“We would love to see as many people as possible take a few minutes to fill out this survey.  This is going to be an easy way for our citizens to have a voice in the community. Not only will you get to provide feedback on areas you think require more attention but also to help us celebrate the things that are being done right,” says Jody Seeley, Community Impact Worker with Our High River.
