Become a Citizen Grader

Vancouver Foundation\'s Vital Signs

The Vancouver Foundation is doing their annual Vital Signs survey of the community. You can become a grader too. See the text below from an email sent out by the Vancouver Foundation.

Our Vital Signs report for 2008 is underway and we are asking metro Vancouver citizens to grade their region on factors that contribute to overall wellness and liveability. This year, we are hoping to significantly increase the number of citizen graders, to better reflect the diversity and
scope of this area we call home.

As a citizen grader, you would be answering a survey regarding how you think metro Vancouver is doing as a region on a variety of different issues such as housing, education, arts and culture, etc. It’s a chance to give your opinion about what things are working well in metro Vancouver and what might need improving.

Please help us with two things (each will take only a couple of minutes):

1. Register to be a citizen grader by June 13, 2008

To register, visit our website – <> . Once you’ve registered, you will receive your survey sometime in June.

2. Forward this e-mail

Please forward this e-mail to your organization, colleagues, friends, networks and anyone else you think might be interested in being a citizen grader for Vital Signs.

The responses from our citizen grading panel will become part of Vancouver Foundation’s Vital Signs for Metro Vancouver – our annual survey of life in the region, where we examine everything from transportation, learning, and housing, to diversity, culture, and the environment.

Your opinions will help Vancouver Foundation better understand the needs of our community and will influence where and what issues we fund. Vital Signs is also used by community leaders, politicians, donors and other funders to stimulate dialogue and inform our decisions.

Thank you for your valued help with this important project. Your participation will help make Vital Signs 2008 a success!

The Vancouver Foundation has published previous surveys in the media. So your opinion could be a contribution to the voice of the entire region. Speak out on the issues that hit close to home.
