National Research: Exploring Connection & Belonging to Community
Tuesday, October 27, 2015

Belonging is at the heart of building stronger communities and a more cohesive, inclusive country. Belonging intersects with all aspects of community life and connects to some of today’s most pressing issues from our inclusion of newcomers to reshaping the relationship between Aboriginal peoples and all Canadians to strengthening rural and remote communities.

This year’s national Vital Signs report, Belonging: Exploring connection to community, looks back over the past 50 years at our sense of belonging and where we as communities and a country are going next leading up to Canada’s sesquicentennial in 2017 and beyond.

Community foundations across Canada are already taking action on many fronts, supporting  community kitchens, children’s camps, environmental cleanups and more, with the hope of strengthen relationships to one another and building communities where we all belong.
