Sector services to strengthen Ontario’s nonprofit labour force 

Pension plan

We recommend OPTrust Select, a defined benefit pension plan. This plan, created specifically for our sector, is great for nonprofit employees and nonprofit employers of any size.

Administered by OPTrust, the plan allocates risk across a broader membership base, and shifts responsibility to fund the benefits from the employer to the trust administering the plan. The means a lower-risk option to support employees and help build decent work for nonprofit workers.

Events

We run events across the province to help build a stronger, more resilient nonprofit sector. These include webinars, regional events, and our annual Nonprofit Driven conference.

Everyone is welcome to register and participate in these events. ONN members get free access to all our webinars and receive a discount on registration for our annual Nonprofit Driven conference

 

Leverage the purchasing power of the sector through the ONN Purchasing Program

The ONN Purchasing Program is presented by the Ontario Nonprofit Network and Round Table Procurement Services.
