How do you measure what matters in your community?

Rather than starting from scratch, one approach that’s gaining traction is using shared impact measurement tools like the Canadian Index of Wellbeing.

Hang on a second. What’s the Canadian Index of Wellbeing?

First and foremost, the CIW is a big idea that regards wellbeing as encompassing a wide variety of aspects of life, beyond economic measures like Gross Domestic Product (GDP). It’s also a tool that is measuring what matters to Canadians. It tracks wellbeing from year to year in an effort to offer clear, effective, and regular information on the quality of life of all Canadians.

In a series of Pecha-Kucha style presentations (each limited to 20 slides with 20 seconds per slide), you’ll learn how five organizations across Canada are working with the Canadian Index of Wellbeing to measure what matters in their communities. The presenters include:

  • Dan Wilson, Director, Policy, Planning and Performance, Ontario Trillium Foundation
  • Robert Janus, Director of Communications, Victoria Foundation
  • Barbara Powell, General Manager of Community Engagement, City of Guelph
  • Nancy Mattes, Director, Social Prosperity Wood Buffalo
  • Denise C. Squire, Executive Director, Woolwich Community Health Centre

After the rapid-fire overview, you’ll have a chance to take a bit of a deeper dive in a series of group discussions led by our presenters as we unpack the challenges of measuring impact and the potential benefits of shared or common measurement frameworks like the Canadian Index of Wellbeing.
