Community Quality of Life Conference: From Indicators to Action

Extended Early Bird Deadline: Register by April 28

Ontario Healthy Communities Coalition, Community Quality Improvement, Algoma University College and Garden River First Nation have been working together as partners to organize this exciting two-day conference.

"Community Quality of Life: From Indicators to Action" will bring together private, public and not-for-profit sector leaders in the common challenge of improving human well being within their respective communities.

The main focus of the conference will be on indicator initiatives, which are being developed by many communities across Canada to address a range of community issues. It will provide opportunities for sharing information about approaches to measuring community quality of life and ways of making indicator initiatives more effective, systematic and relevant. It will also provide an impetus for moving indicator initiatives from data collection to becoming catalysts for community change.

Five key note addresses will be given by acclaimed leaders and renowned experts on various aspects of community quality of life. Sixteen workshops will be provided by practitioners, researchers and academics from a diverse range of programs and initiatives, organized into four themes:

  1. Using indicators to improve community quality of life
  2. Building healthy environments
  3. Quality of life challenges and opportunities among First Nations peoples
  4. Innovative approaches to improving community quality of life
