The Saskatchewan Wellbeing Exchange Network (SWEN) is a resource that expands our understanding of how well our communities and citizens are faring beyond the economic measures of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP). The SIW provides data specific to Saskatchewan that is relevant and meaningful provincially. Read the Saskatchewan Index of Wellbeing report here.

Every second Wednesday the Saskatchewan Index of Wellbeing will delve into each of the 8 domains that make up wellbeing, focusing on how Saskatchewanians are faring and reflect on the interconnectivity of each domain and the actions needed to ensure a healthy future for all.

The 2019 Canadian Index of Child and Youth Well-Being was developed to communicate what Canada is like for kids from birth to 18 years. The Index recognizes the interdependence of 9 key areas including play and a sense of belonging. It was reported that only 1 in 5 youth ages 5 to 11 get 90 minutes of daily play time. It was also reported that 1 in 3 youth are not involved in social groups and activities. The full report can be found online.
