About Vital Signs®

Greater Peterborough’s Vital Signs® is a collaborative community initiative led by the Community Foundation of Greater Peterborough.  It is a snapshot of our community that measures the vitality of Greater Peterborough, identifies needs, strengths and trends, and supports actions on issues that are critical to our quality of life.

 At CFGP, we believe that your community makes you, and you make your community.  So it’s important to know your community, to understand how it shapes you, to see yourself reflected back in the whole, and to know how best to give back to sustain the vitality of Greater Peterborough.

Vital Signs® is more than a simple report on our quality of life or just an engaging glimpse into what makes our community tick.  It’s community knowledge in action: Vital Signs® is used as an outreach and education tool by our partners.  It’s an accessible and engaging read for community members who want to know more about the place they live, and where they fit into it.  And at CFGP, we use Vital Signs to help us connect the dots between caring community members and local causes that matter, informing our community leadership and granting activities at the Foundation.
