Well-being in Nova Scotia’s communities: Applying a community well-being framework to track provincial health

Engage Nova Scotia currently holds the most information on Canadian’s well-being in one place, both in terms of number of Canadians and the content of the information. Drawing from the Canadian Index of Well-Being framework, we are able to compare well-being between communities in Nova Scotia to better understand what helps or hinders a high quality of life. This project will focus on analyzing the well-being data and developing infrastructure within the organization to build on this research. Ultimately, this project aims to explore quality of life in Nova Scotia and how this can be increased at the local and provincial level.
