The online session will be held from 4 – 6 p.m. on Thursday, December 9, and will be facilitated by Melri Wright and Mike Wright of Ledge Leadership. The meeting will take a World Café style sharing knowledge and creating possibilities for action built on the notion of group intelligence. Participants will hear lightning talks from four inspiring local guest speakers and will have the chance to participate in smaller group discussions on relevant topics. Input from participants will be reflected in a Vital Focus Report on Housing being prepared by the Foundation set for release in early 2022.

Vital Signs is Canada’s most extensive community-driven data program. Spearheaded by Community Foundations of Canada and led by community foundations across the country and around the world, Vital Signs uses local knowledge to measure community well-being and support action towards improving collective quality of life. Vital Conversations may be used to collect insight from the community about priority issues, gather insight from specific demographics within the community, as a conversation starter, and/or as a tool to spark connections and collaborative action on identified community priorities.

This conversation is generously sponsored by Leith Wheeler Investment Counsel Ltd. and is mounted in association with community partner The Institute of Southern Georgian Bay.

Created in 1994, Community Foundation Grey Bruce has a mandate to enhance community vitality by fostering open discussion about local need, sharing knowledge and growing endowments to provide strategic granting and support to a wide range of non-profit organizations.
