The government’s 2017 pre-budget submission process closed on August 4. We made three recommendations for consideration:
- Legal and regulatory framework: Commit to fully fund a consultation process to inform the federal government’s plans for a new legal and regulatory framework for the charitable and nonprofit sector.
- Access to Data: To have the government work with our sector to identify gaps in government-collected data, as well as barriers to the sector’s ability to fully access and use data.
- Grants and Contributions Reform: Extend the recent reforms made to grants and contributions management at the Department of Heritage to all government departments. These reforms included changes to administration, faster processing, and more multi-year agreements; we also ask that overhead costs are considered when awarding funding.
