Congratulations to the City of Guelph and the Canadian Index of Wellbeing (CIW) for receiving the Community Indicators Consortium Impact Award for 2013 for their work on the Guelph Community Wellbeing Initiative. The Community Indicators Consortium is an active, open learning network and global community of practice among persons interested or engaged in the field of indicators development and application. Its 2013 Summit took place in October in Chicago, Il. The City of Guelph is engaging with its residents around a new vision of wellbeing for Guelph, setting out new directions and approaches to improve the quality of life of residents. Inspired by the Canadian Index of Wellbeing, the Guelph Wellbeing Initiative provides a foundation for measuring the health and prosperity of the community, and which areas may need improvement. -- The City of Guelph is a member of the Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Community Data Consortium, part of the Canadian Council on Social Development's (CCSD) Community Data Program (CDP). The CDP is a gateway for municipalities and community-based organizations to access data from Statistics Canada and other institutions, in order to identify and better understand the social and economic trends within their individual communities. The CCSD has also been engaged in the Community Index of Wellbeing since its inception.
