What is Vital Victoria?

Launched in 2021 as a companion to the Vital Signs magazine, Vital Victoria is a digital platform that tracks over 70 indicators on quality of life in Greater Victoria. The platform allows us to track more indicators with more years of data than we ever could in the magazine.

Along with historical data on many of the indicators published over the years, Vital Victoria includes definitions for the indicators, data sources, and web links. You’ll also find news and reports related to the indicators and issue areas, the Sustainable Development Goals they relate to, and a feature article on this year’s Vital Signs theme of ‘What does community mean to you?’

The site also includes links to Victoria’s Vital Signs report, which measures the vitality of our region, identifies significant trends, and captures citizen grades in twelve issue areas critical to our quality of life.
