How it works

Building knowledge and understanding of wellbeing from national to community

The CIW provides the means to measure wellbeing and its evolution over time. With a secure data repository at the University of Waterloo, the CIW carries out two streams of research:

  • Indicators research: National and Provincial Index reports; and
  • Survey research: Community-level Wellbeing Survey reports.
