What started out as a source of partisan tension seems to have been largely diffused as a political issue – as in, the Qualified Canadian Journalism Organization tax plan isn’t likely to result in actual or perceived pro-government bias – but it also isn’t going to save professional journalism in Canada. Check out my latest NPQ North to learn about the expert panel’s recommendations, and to explore some of the other options for new models of sustainable media.
It’s been a few weeks since the last NPQ North installment, and you might think a Senate of Canada report is a bit heavy for a summer read, but if you are at all involved or interested in the nonprofit and charitable sector, it’s actually pretty fascinating. You can also start out with my review of the report and see if you feel compelled to read further!
One of the more interesting issues is the status of religious organizations who receive the full tax benefits of charitable status but without the same requirements and oversight as other charities. The Senate report stops short of recommending a change but leaves the door open as well – what do you think?

It’s a good thing my editor is somewhat flexible on my work limit, because exploring the issues around the current Ontario budget – from the choices being made to the implementation process to the impact on communities – is almost overwhelming. Please check out my effort and let me know: am I making sense or just adding to the confusion?
After a brief hiatus for a very hectic time at work including hosting Make A Buzz Ottawa 2019, NPQ North is back with the story of a dynamic grassroots Canadian charity that is growing at a rapid rate, thanks to effective social media networking, and a clear passion and demonstrated ability for solving problems.
