Canadian Index of Wellbeing Report
Is our overall quality of life getting better or worse? Are we getting closer or moving farther away from realizing the kind of Canada we want to live in? The 2016 Canadian Index of Wellbeing (CIW) national report compares trends in Canadian wellbeing, showing that the gap between economic growth and wellbeing is widening.

Second, it encourages policy makers and government leaders to make decisions based on solid and compelling evidence. Third, it empowers Ontarians to advocate for change that responds to their needs and values.
