The Living in Niagara report is a triennial measure of quality of life in Niagara, across 12 Sectors that align with the Social Determinants of Health. The report and its Sectors are described, built and owned by the Niagara-wide community.
Report construction is facilitated by Niagara Connects, a Niagara-wide network of people working together to plan, learn, innovate and lead community action toward a stronger future for Niagara. Niagara Connects engages diverse players to build evidence-informed action plans for transformative socioeconomic change.
The report and its companion tool, www.niagaraknoweldgeexchange.com (NKE) are cornerstones in building a culture of evidence-informed planning for Niagara. The validated process of building the report weaves networks among diverse partners working together to intentionally gather, share and record data, information, and knowledge. These partners agree on Suggested Action Steps to guide focused planning and decision-making.
This resource describes the purpose, format and construction methodology of the Living in Niagara report.
