This report, the first produced provincially, draws on data collected for the Canadian Index of Wellbeing’s (CIW) national report in 2012. In keeping with the CIW’s mission, the report focuses on three principal objectives. First, based on rigorous research, it describes how the quality of life for Ontarians has shifted from 1994 to 2010, and how those shifts compare to all Canadians. We explore how Ontarians are really doing both overall and within each domain, and in comparison with Canada. Second, this report encourages policy makers and government leaders to make decisions based on solid and compelling evidence. Third, it empowers Ontarians to advocate for change that responds to their needs and values.
