Backgrounder: Our Journey to Date (PDF report)
October 12, 2017 | Woolwich Memorial Centre – Community Room
In order to develop a wellbeing strategy that is focused on the most pressing needs and priorities of the community, data was gathered through both citizen input (qualitative data) as well as statistics from secondary sources (quantitative data). Both types of data are needed in order to ensure that our understanding is improved by integrating different ways of knowing.
Purpose of meeting: to share Canadian Index of Wellbeing Profile for Waterloo Region (quantitative) and deeper dive on Engagement feedback (qualitative); to identify priorities and begin to craft a strategy for Wellbeing Waterloo Region.
Reference Group Meeting Notes (PDF summary)
Discovery meetings with current collaboratives, area municipalities, and other community stakeholders involved in measuring well being in Waterloo Region took place from July 2016 – September 2016. The purpose of the meetings was to create awareness about the Community Wellness Initiative and gather feedback to inform the overall process and structure.
These meetings also helped to establish interest in moving forward and methods to connect and engage with the collaborative/partner in the future. Some meetings were held with the collaborative as a group and others were held individuals that represented their organization.
