Charitable sector struggling to stay afloat: Imagine Canada on the CBC Power & Politics

Charitable sector struggling to stay afloat: Imagine Canada on the CBC Power & Politics

Our CEO Bruce MacDonald spoke with the CBC Vassy Kapelos about the unprecedented challenges charities are facing due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The interview addresses the urgent need for support from the government. 

"It's pretty dramatic," MacDonald told Power & Politics host Vassy Kapelos. "Most charities in this country are being profoundly affected by drops in revenues, by a need to change and adapt their services, by not having access to volunteers, many of whom delivered those services."

In early May, Imagine Canada will be releasing data from a recent sector survey on the impact of COVID-19. Preliminary results show that over 70% of organizations are reporting a decline in revenues, and that the impact is much more significant than the 2008-2009 economic collapse. 

To be well positioned for recovery when the time comes, Imagine Canada is asking the federal government for a Sector Resilience Grant program

Changements à la Subvention salariale d’urgence du Canada

Le gouvernement fédéral a apporté des changements à la Subvention salariale d’urgence du Canada (SSUC) afin d’en élargir la portée et de faciliter l’accès à cet appui indispensable en ce temps de crise pour les employeurs admissibles dont les organismes de bienfaisance et sans but lucratif.
