The paper outlines the ways the index’s framework can be applied at the provincial, regional and local level to improve health and wellbeing. It also offers details about how the Canadian Index of Wellbeing (CIW) is already being put into action by municipal governments, funders and a significant number of Ontario’s Community Health Centres. The paper explores the challenges measuring what matters, the Canadian Index of Wellbeing (CIW) Tool, trends that reveal how Canada is really doing, understanding the CIW within an Ontario context, using the CIW to evaluate the impact of health promotion and community development, and next steps for test driving the CIW.
