Nonprofit Driven Annual Conference

Nonprofit Driven is an annual public policy conference. It is also an important gathering for nonprofit leaders, community organizers, and policymakers to collaborate and form strategic partnerships.

Nonprofit Driven 2022

This year’s conference schedule will intentionally include longer breaks and built-in opportunities for attendees, staff and supporters to connect. Through facilitated activities and quiet spaces for one-on-one conversations, art, a photo booth, and a social at the end of Day 1, there will be lots of ways for you to reunite with fellow colleagues and meet new ones! Before attending the conference, please review our Being Together Agreements guidelines that outline ways we will share space together.

Thank you to our generous sponsors for making Nonprofit Driven possible this year!


Registration is for one person only. Registration cannot be shared by multiple people. For more details on registration, please read our policy. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our team at

Nonprofit Driven: Care team

The conference will have an onsite care team and spaces to support attendees. The team includes ONN staff and active listeners who can be considered “go-to” people throughout the conference. All attendees will also have access to a quiet space, and mental health/wellness resources. 

COVID protocols

We are taking the steps needed to help ensure your safety at the conference this year. The details are outlined in our COVID mitigation policy but here are some key points:

  • All attendees will be required to be vaccinated. 
  • Attendees are strongly encouraged to mask at the conference, rapid test before attending, and stay home if they are experiencing symptoms. Full refunds will be provided so there is no concern about financial implications of canceling.
  • There will be a colour coded sticker system at registration to make it easier for everyone to communicate and consent about physical touching and boundaries (handshake, hugs, etc.).


ONN understands the importance of accessibility. ASL interpretation will be provided at all plenary sessions during the conference. The event at Metro Toronto Convention Centre (South Building) will occur on Level 700 and a map of the space is available online. Should you require specific accommodations, please let our team know as soon as possible.
