Winnipeg's Vital Signs® 2017

Table for 1200 More.

COMMUNITY PRIDE The third Vital Conversation took place at this year’s Table for 1200 More, an annual pop-up dinner in a surprise location that highlights architecture and design in Winnipeg and supports StorefrontMB. This year’s event was held June 3 and stretched from Portage and Main along Rorie Street to the Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre. Attendees were invited to fill out a short Vital Signs survey, which was also distributed to several neighbourhood renewal corporations. The process allowed Foundation staff to engage in many interesting conversations.

WHAT WE LEARNED This Vital Conversation was an opportunity to celebrate our city! We wanted to learn more about people’s connections to Winnipeg: where those connections happen, whether citizens feel safe, what they are proud of, and what they would do to improve this place we all call home.

680 RESPONDENTS COMPLETED THE COMMUNITY PRIDE VITAL CONVERSATION SURVEY SOURCE: WINNIPEG’S VITAL SIGNS 2017

Wholeheartedly the short survey told us people want to belong – to feel part of a community. Give them a place to be and a common experience, and they’ll foster that sense of community pride. Proud Winnipeggers say they generally feel safe and have multiple connections to their community.
