Second Report: Quality of Life in Canadian Communities

Federation of Canadian Municipalities, March 2001

The Federation of Canadian Municipalities developed a set of indicators of Quality of Life to measure social and economic progress in urban areas to capture living conditions that weren't always visible in traditional community assessments. Indicators include community affordability, employment, housing, community health, safety, community stress, community participation, human resources and social infrastructure. Study was conducted in 18 municipal regions, including 10 from all over Ontario. 114 pages, downloadable PDF.
