Vital Signs Report, 2013
The County Foundation (TCF) has launched its first Vital Signs report. The TCF joined 25 other community foundations and Community Foundations of Canada in making this community snapshot public. Containing vital information about the County's strengths and challenges, Prince Edward County's Vital Signs report is a platform for discussion and action. More sources were consulted for Vital Signs than are referred to in our report. For a complete list of sources, click here.

TCF published a Vital Signs Progress Report in 2015, on Vital Signs Actions. The Report tells you about what the Working Groups have accomplished and where we are heading. It provides new data and community feedback. And it describes the projects underway in all three areas, as well as opportunities for volunteers to get involved and ways to support project funding. It is indeed a tribute to the continuing dedication and work of all the organisations and individuals stepping up to move things forward in concrete and lasting ways.
A CALL TO ACTION
