The Comox Valley Vital Signs report has been released. It covers a number of aspects of life in the region, like air and water quality and the ability to obtain jobs.

Chair Harry Panjer says another report will be done within the next 3 years to see what improvements have been made.

Panjer says there were some interesting findings in the report. He notes that people with lower incomes tend to feel less connected to the community.

Panjer notes the report also found that kids in the Comox Valley are less prepared to enter their first year of school than others across the province.

He says another report will be done in 3 years to see what improvements have been made. The Comox Valley Vital Signs report can be viewed online through the Community Foundation’s website.
