Well-being Toronto: What is it?

  • “Wellbeing Toronto” - a new web-tool that measures community wellbeing across the City of Toronto's 140 neighbourhoods
  • provides a number of indicators that will assist in the monitoring of economic and social wellbeing by allowing users to custom select and combine indicators and see their results instantly on a map
  • designed to not only assist the public in a better understanding the diverse communities that comprise the City, but also as support tool for the development of policies and programs that require place-based perspective
  • Consolidates City operational metrics, socio-demographics and infrastructure service data, analyzes them and creates a series of composite indices for 10 well-being domains

The NWI: What is it?

  • Based on work for the Strong Neighbourhoods Task Force (2005), which resulted in 13 Priority Investment Neighbourhoods, the NWIwill now focus on the ability to measure and monitor well-being across all the City’s 140 neighbourhoods
  • A collaborative open data approach
  • Demographic Data leveraged from other initiatives such as the Community Data Consortium

NEXT STEPS
  • First version will go live in May/June 2011 and be updated on an annual basis.
  • Continuing to build an infrastructure that supports, provides, and consolidates standards for corporate-wide enterprise business mapping applications and data sharing (linking data resources throughout the Corporation)
  • Data sharing will take place on the website with reinforcing the linkage to the City’s Open Data Strategy http://www.toronto.ca/open/catalogue.htm
  • Complements existing map tools (TOMaps) and will serve as a foundation for future city web mapping, and vehicle for cross-cluster information sharing.
