Sector Monitor

The Sector Monitor survey program, launched at the end of 2009, regularly monitors the state of charities across the country and their ability to deliver their missions.

The goal of the Sector Monitor program is to provide relevant and timely information on the issues facing charities and nonprofits to the sector itself and to various sector stakeholders, including Imagine Canada members, policymakers, business leaders, the media and the Canadian public.

Latest Sector Monitor Report

Sector Monitor vol. 4 no. 1

Responses to this edition of the Sector Monitor indicate that charity leaders are optimistic about the future.

Slightly fewer charities reported that they experienced difficulties and the percentage of organizations that predicted they’d be better able to deliver on their mission in one year increased. However, sector stakeholders should be on the lookout for emergent challenges and adaptive strategies related to increased demand.

The eighth and most recent edition of our Sector Monitor was conducted between October 31, 2013 and November 29, 2013.
