Community Foundation Grey Bruce to host Vital Conversation on Housing

Vital Conversation on Housing

Community Foundation Grey Bruce will be hosting an online interactive Vital ConversationÆ on December 9, 2021. The goal of this Vital Conversation is to give participants a deeper understanding of the housing crisis through learning and sharing new perspectives on the issue. This event is supported by Leith Wheeler Investment Counsel Ltd.

This event is open to anyone with concerns or interest in housing issues in Grey Bruce. To register for Vital Conversation, visit

The Community Foundation has received a lot of interest in this event to-date. More information will be forthcoming regarding the speakers.

The online session will be held from 4 to 6 pm on Thursday, December 9 and will be facilitated by Melri Wright and Mike Wright of Ledge Leadership. The meeting will take a World Café style sharing knowledge and creating possibilities for action built on the notion of group intelligence. Participants will hear lightning talks from four inspiring local guest speakers and will have the chance to participate in smaller group discussions on relevant topics. Input from participants will be reflected in a Vital FocusÆ Report on Housing being prepared by the Foundation set for release in early 2022. The report will be shared with municipalities and other organizations.

Vital SignsÆ is Canada’s most extensive community-driven data program. Spearheaded by Community Foundations of Canada and led by community foundations across the country and around the world, Vital Signs uses local knowledge to measure community well-being and support action towards improving collective quality of life. Vital Conversations may be used to collect insight from the community about priority issues, gather insight from specific demographics within the community, as a conversation starter, and/or as a tool to spark connections and collaborative action on identified community priorities.

This conversation is generously sponsored by Leith Wheeler Investment Counsel Ltd. and is mounted in association with community partner, The Institute of Southern Georgian Bay.

Created in 1994, Community Foundation Grey Bruce has a mandate to enhance community vitality by fostering open discussion about local need, sharing knowledge, and growing endowments to provide strategic granting and support to a wide range of non-profit organizations.


At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful and factual, up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.

South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.
