Belonging in a Community of Contrasts (2017)

View this report

In 2017, the focus of our Vital Solutions report, was working with community partners in the priority areas of equity, affordable housing, mental health, diversity & inclusion.

Working with leading agencies in these areas, along with Sheridan College researchers, our investigative efforts in 2016 - 2017 included:

  • Affordable Housing research
  • Food (in) Security research
  • Equity (employment) research
  • Sense of Belonging survey

This report also shares highlights of the Belonging Matters survey we conducted with the YMCA of Oakville and Town of Oakville to research our sense of inclusion and belonging.
