Media Advisory: Ten years since Amalgamation...How is Toronto doing? Toronto's Vital Signs report 2008 to be released Tuesday, October 7th 2008

    TORONTO, Sept. 30 /CNW/ - The Toronto Community Foundation releases its
2008 Toronto Vital Signs report on Tuesday, October 7th.
    Toronto's Vital Signs was created to provide an integrated snapshot of
the vitality of our city. This annual Report looks at key indicators in 11
specific areas ranging from Work Opportunities and Housing Costs to the city's
record on Environment, Safety, Learning, Getting Around, Belonging, Getting
Started in Toronto and Gap between Rich and Poor. The 2008 report looks
specifically at the 10 year trends and reveals a city with considerable
strengths, but struggling to ensure that its successes benefit all citizens.
Has it become a city of "Haves" and "Have Nots"?
    Members of the media are invited to interview Rahul Bhardwaj, President &
CEO of the Toronto Community Foundation, on the key findings from the Report.
The full report will be available at on Tuesday October 7th 2008.
    As a Community Foundation concerned with the vitality of Toronto, the
findings from this Report help increase the effectiveness of our grantmaking
while also informing our donors and Torontonians on the priority issues facing
our city and how people can make a difference.

    The Toronto Community Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated
to making Toronto the best place to live, work, learn and grow. The Foundation
is one of Canada's largest public Foundations and serves as a simple,
effective and attractive alternative to establishing a private foundation. By
partnering with the Foundation, donors support causes that matter to them
while becoming engaged with a vital organization that is dedicated to
improving the quality of life in Toronto.
