In fall 2019 we will be launching a community wellbeing survey for Yukon based in part on findings from this engagement. The data generated by this survey will provide baseline information on a comprehensive set of factors that reflect residents’ wellbeing and create opportunities for understanding inequities – who is doing well, and who might be falling behind.

What is this engagement about?

How would you measure wellbeing? We want to hear your thoughts about measuring what matters and defining what a high quality of life looks like in Yukon.
We are partnering with the Canadian Index of Wellbeing to take a deep dive into the factors that drive and contribute to wellbeing in Yukon. This approach provides a unique opportunity to learn more about the complexity of wellbeing in people’s lives using the CIW model and its eight domains: community vitality, democratic engagement, education, environment, healthy populations, leisure and culture, living standards and time use.

How will my input make a difference?

Your input will help us identify new wellbeing indicators for Yukon that we can track and report on going forward. Your feedback will also be used to customize and shape the community wellbeing survey that will launch later this fall. 

Where can I find results?

Input received during our workshop will help us build Yukon's indicators and create our fall 2019 survey. A summary of the survey results will be posted when available.
