The Living in York Region project is seeking to develop a made-in-York Region reliable baseline understanding of residents and communities’ well-being across a series of civic, economic, environmental and social indicators. The project is designed to give a voice to residents to help generate solutions to key issues affecting local communities and neighbourhoods.
