Final NPQ North of 2019: In Wake of Federal Election, Canadian Nonprofits Seek New Policy Framework

In the aftermath of an election campaign that had a chilling effect on nonprofit advocacy, the December edition of NPQ North looks at a revitalized initiative to “give a home in government” to the charitable sector.

There is wisdom in the “Home in Government” campaign and these relatively straightforward recommendations for making it happen—sector veterans who have seen little progress in their lifetimes understand that unfocused passion is unlikely to deliver results, particular in the environment of a minority government. If there is no progress prior to the next election (on average minority governments in Canada last two years) the Senate report and the momentum for reform will surely be lost.

This will be the final issue of NPQ North for 2019. I want to thank the team at NPQ for providing me the opportunity to write exclusively about the Canadian non-profit community, and I am especially grateful to readers who have reach out with story ideas and words of encouragement. All the best to you and yours in the holiday season and for a safe and prosperous 2020.
