Imagine Canada reports optimism in the sector

publication date: Sep 1, 2011
Canada's charities and foundations continue to demonstrate positive signs of recovery from more than two years of economic strife.  Imagine Canada's most recent Sector Monitor survey indicates that sector leaders are starting to breathe a little easier; immediate financial challenges have receded for some organizations and overall organizational stress has declined from a high seen one year ago.

"Although these findings are heartening, results are far from universally positive," cautions Marcel Lauzière, Imagine Canada President & CEO. "Although a new optimism is in the air, major challenges remain, particularly with regards to adequate financial resources for organizations."

Canada's nonprofit sector employs more than 2 million people representing 11.1% of the economically active population.  The sector also represents $106.4 billion or 7.1% of our country's GDP (larger than the automotive or manufacturing industries.)
