COVID-19: State of the sector one year later

As Ontario moves into pandemic recovery and rebuilding, the sector needs responsive public policy solutions and supports to meet the immediate and long-term needs of our organizations and the communities we serve. Data is key! This is a crucial time to gather evidence to plan and to advocate to government and other funders for a more equitable and sustainable of a multicoloured umbrella in the rain

That’s why we are asking you and nonprofits across the province to be part of the COVID-19 impact survey. This one-year follow up, in collaboration with l’Assemblée de la Francophonie de l’Ontario (l’AFO), will build on data from our flash surveys in March/April 2020, and our joint survey in June 2020.

Three reasons to complete the survey

  1. Inform public policy solutions and other supports to strengthen your nonprofit and the sector
  2. Access de-identified data sets, with province-wide and region-specific data, to support your own work, community engagement, and advocacy
  3. Bonus! Enter to win two free tickets to Nonprofit Driven 2021

Most importantly, this survey is your opportunity to strengthen our sector’s voice and lead change.

Survey details

The survey is open to all nonprofits in Ontario (including charities, nonprofit co-operatives and grassroots groups) with a mission to serve a public benefit.

We need 10 minutes of your time to provide vital data on the financial, operational and human resource impacts of the pandemic on your organization, access or barriers to government measures, and rebuilding opportunities and challenges. This survey closes on June 4, but we would appreciate your response as soon as possible.

Together, we can collect vital data to advocate for a rebuilding strategy that meets the needs and aspirations of the diverse communities across Ontario.

Please share widely with your networks to help us reach organizations across the province and the sector.

Thank you for your support and collaboration.
