Non-Profit Sector Appreciation Week
Non-Profit Sector Appreciation Week
Feb 13, 2023 9:47:07 PM

This week we’re celebrating Ontario’s remarkable not-for-profit sector. From supporting youth and children, to protecting our vulnerable populations, not-for-profit organizations play an important role in helping build strong communities in Ontario.

Ontario’s non-profit sector is the largest in Canada, with over 58,000 registered charities and non-profit organizations that offer a wide range of services to children, families and seniors including mental health support, seniors’ services, homeless shelters, services for people who have experienced violence, skills development, specialized help for children, support for people with disabilities, and family support services to programs that promote arts and culture, environmental sustainability and recreation.

Last year, the ministry of Children, Community and Social Services provided about $5.6 billion to non-profit institutions including developmental services agencies, Children’s Aid Societies, Violence Against Women shelters, Indigenous centres, and Family Services organizations to help more Ontarians connect to these important services.

Our government is grateful to the more than one million Ontarians working in this sector. We celebrate you all this week – and every week – for your incredible work and dedication to the not-for-profit sector.
