Human experience is shaped by how individuals interact on a day-to-day basis.

Having the time and opportunity to develop personal relationships with family, friends and colleagues is central to one's sense of identity, culture, belonging and security. At the same time, broader social cohesion, community vitality and opportunities for cultural expression are important for personal enrichment and individual fulfillment, and for ensuring that people feel included and respected.

The society domain consists of three subdomains and 14 indicators.

Note: Indicators marked with a star icon are headline indicators. Headline indicators are intended to provide a high-level assessment of overall quality of life in Canada.
