                    snapshot of our city's wellness and livability.

                    Calgary's Vital Signs was launched by
                    The Calgary Foundation as a long-term initiative to spark
                    discussion, among Calgarians, on our city's quality of
                    life and to strengthen connections with community
                    organizations and institutions, governments and citizens
                    in order to bring about constructive change.
