The Canadian Index of Wellbeing (CIW) launched its 3rd national report: How are Canadians Really doing? Examining eight domains of wellbeing from 1994 to 2014, the report concludes:
There is a massive gap between Canadians’ wellbeing and GDP, and it has continued to grow since the 2008 recession.
Based in the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences at the University of Waterloo, the CIW tracks 64 indicators from 1994 to 2014 to provide a comprehensive analysis of what Canadians have told us is of vital importance to their quality of life. While economic data are part of the index to capture changes in living standards, the CIW also reports on fluctuations in community vitality, democratic engagement, leisure and culture, education, environment, healthy populations and time use to measure what matters most to Canadians.
