The Canmore Community Monitoring Report (CCMR) is a summary of key Town of Canmore indicators that provide local information about past and current trends. The most recent reports are below:
A 2021/22 edition of the Canmore Community Monitoring Report will be underway later this year.
The Town of Canmore’s Community Monitoring program began in 1995 based on recommendations from the Growth Management Strategy. As the monitoring program evolved to meet community need, the resulting report grew from a 32-page threshold and monitoring report to a 288-page compendium of data. Although the current report is robust and collaboratively created, very few people refer to the report and many find it unfocused and difficult to navigate.
To improve the reporting program in the future, the focus will be on community-level indicators that provide high-level guidance to inform decisions, that can be updated regularly, that highlight emerging trends, and possibly incorporated into a system that is easier to access.
