What is myPerthHuron

It is an online resource to help track the well-being of our communities, where we are doing well, and where our communities may be facing challenges. Perth and Huron are similar in many ways to other rural communities in southwestern Ontario, but are distinctive in some ways too. This resource allows citizens to explore these similarities and differences.

Traditional measures of a community’s well-being measure large-scale economic activity, such as GDP, Gross Domestic Product. Economists focus on national import and export figures, interest rates, corporate profits and unemployment rates. We would like to know how real life and real people who live in our community are doing. We provide information on eight domains borrowed from the Canadian Index of Well-being that address economic, environmental, social, and cultural issues.

These domains are Community Vitality, Democratic Engagement, Education, the Environment, Healthy Populations, Leisure and Culture, Living Standards and Time Use.

Rather than report on well-being nationally or provincially, our site provides information about more local goings-on. Where possible we have tracked down local data about our community. We provide information from Perth and Huron sources – from local agencies and governments about local activities.

This site is a work-in-progress and is being updated continuously. Check regularly to see what has been added.
