ONN’s goal is to catalyze improvements in the Ontario nonprofit sector’s funding environment by advocating for the reform of the sector’s investment relationship with government and the removal of barriers for nonprofits to earn income.
Over the years, ONN has focused on important initiatives, such as:
- Reducing red tape in transfer payment agreements to help nonprofits focus on outcomes
- Promoting nonprofit social enterprises to help address challenges like growing inequality, household debt, and the climate crisis
- Expanding nonprofit access to surplus public lands
- Channelling the purchasing power of governments and anchor institutions to provide community benefits.
