Shaping a Labour Force Strategy for Ontario’s Nonprofit Sector
The nonprofit sector employs over 1 million people and represents 2.6% of Ontario’s GDP, making nonprofits a major contributor to the province’s economic growth. Paid workers, like volunteers, drive community-building work. A key part of strengthening Ontario’s nonprofit sector is strengthening its labour force – and now, building on years of sector collaboration, comprehensive labour force planning is in the works.
Labour force planning in the sector is multi-faceted. We’ve identified a key cross-cutting issue which nonprofits can best work together on: leadership. We want to help develop a culture of labour market planning in the sector. That’s why ONN has embarked on the next phase of our project to create a collaborative labour force plan with the nonprofit sector.
