Volunteer/Non-Profit Sector Report Published

The Journey Continues - The Second Report to Canadians on Implementing An Accord Between the Government of Canada and the Voluntary Sector has just been made available through the Canadian Depository Services Program.

Whether one calls it the volunteer sector, the non-profit sector or the social economy, there is no doubt that the non-corporate sector of society plays a major role, not only in terms of providing services and jobs, but also in building equity and in fostering inclusion and democratic values.

The above-mentioned accord is part of the so-called Voluntary Sector Initiative (VSI), an attempt to encourage dialogue and partnership between the state and the non-profit sector. The VSI is looking at all issues affecting the volunteer sector, including training, recruitment and retention, the regulatory and fiscal environment for non-profits, and information technology and management issues, and it has sponsored new research on those topics.
