COVID-19: State of the sector one year later
In May 2021, ONN conducted a sector-wide survey with l’Assemblée de la Francophonie de l’Ontario (l’AFO) to gather critical data needed to help the sector build back from COVID-19. Nearly 3,000 nonprofits all around the province responded to our survey.
The data reveals much about nonprofits’ commitment to continue serving communities, the fragmented and inadequate government measures to respond to the COVID-19 crisis, and the work ahead as Ontario transitions into a recovery.
$65 billion to Ontario’s GDP, more than the construction, energy and agriculture sectors. The sector survey results paint a picture of fragmented and inadequate support to the sector during the pandemic.
Now is the opportunity for the sector to leverage this critical knowledge to get the supports needed for collective advocacy and identify where we go from here.
There are five key policy recommendations for long-term investment and public policy that recognize the central role nonprofits play locally and across regions to advance a better, greener, more equitable economy and a more inclusive society.
