Nonprofit Driven Annual Conference

Nonprofit Driven Annual Conference Speakers | Sessions and Workshops | Activities | Conference Schedule | Sponsors

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 2024

We are so excited to invite you back to Nonprofit Driven on May 14-15, 2024 at the Toronto Reference Library. As nonprofits continue to face daunting challenges and navigate rapidly changing contexts, let’s get together to dream big about how we can shape the future of our sector.

Our conference is Ontario’s largest nonprofit public policy forum, where you can expect to dig into topics that span from advocacy to social finance. Most importantly, Nonprofit Driven is a space to have fun, gain insights from diverse sector leaders, and contribute to the collective heartbeat that sustains nonprofit work! 

We will be releasing information about sessions, opportunities to network, plenaries, and workshops in the coming months.

Thank you to our generous partners, sponsors and supporters for making Nonprofit Driven possible this year!

Tickets and registration

We are implementing a new tiered pricing model for tickets to Nonprofit Driven that aims to acknowledge our vastly different relationships with, and access to, financial resources as organizations in the nonprofit ecosystem. We hope this model balances the varying budgets of organizations and increases access, while allowing ONN to cover our conference costs. We’ve included brief descriptions to support your ability to choose the price-point that fits your organization.

We want to encourage as many nonprofits to attend the conference, but due to venue capacity, there is a limit of purchasing up to two (2) tickets per organization. Registration is for one person only. Registration cannot be shared by multiple people. All registrants are subject to our registration policies, which can be found here.

Access looks different for everyone – so there is an opportunity to request accommodations that will enable your access directly in the registration form. The Toronto Reference Library is wheelchair accessible, including barrier-free and all-gender restrooms. The conference will take place on the ground and second floor, and will have a quiet room and private prayer space available. ONN is mindful that our friends and colleagues will be gathering with different personal circumstances. We encourage masking as well as cooperation towards a scent-reduced environment so we may welcome those with sensitivities. If you have any questions please contact us at

Care team

Nonprofit Driven will once again have an onsite care team and spaces to support attendees. The team includes ONN staff, volunteers, 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.
