Ottawa Insights

Ottawa Insights is the Ottawa Community Foundation’s web-based community knowledge centre. It is a collaborative tool. Content is developed by curating existing data to distill key information on where Ottawa stands and how it is moving in relation to a broad suite of issues affecting quality of life. When we created OI, we leveraged our past experience with Vital Signs to deliver an enriched and adaptable vehicle for knowledge and engagement. Our goal is to support shared understanding and strategic collaboration by donors, funders, policy makers, delivery agencies, and citizens working towards a vibrant, caring, and equitable city. We invite you to visit the Ottawa Insights website to learn more.

Vital Signs

Between 2006 and 2010, the Ottawa Community Foundation produced Vital Signs, an annual community checkup conducted by community foundations across Canada. It measures the vitality of our cities. Vital Signs is coordinated nationally by Community Foundations of Canada. We have archived past editions here for your information.
