On July 13, the CCE welcomed Harvey Low, Acting Manager, City of Toronto Social Research & Analysis Unit, to present “Wellbeing Toronto“, part of The Power of Mapping Series. Wellbeing Toronto is a new free web tool from the City of Toronto that allows users to select, combine, and weight a number of indicators on neighbourhood wellness, with results appearing instantly in maps, tables and graphs. The goal of this tool is to allow users to better understand the relative challenges and opportunities with respect to health in Toronto’s diverse neighbourhoods.
About ‘The Power of Mapping’
This event is part of CCE’s series of events on the potential of mapping to strengthen communities’ ability to know their neighbourhood and plan for its future. Why mapping? In cities around the world, community and neighborhood organizations are using mapping tools to assist them in visioning, planning and advocating for their needs. It’s a useful tool for people to understand their communities, represent themselves and their perspectives, and plan for their futures.
