ONN’s goal is a strong nonprofit workforce and a sector that models decent work employment practices.

Our goal is to strengthen and support the nonprofit sector labour force and its diverse and active volunteer base. This will result in the mobilization of a decent work movement in the sector.

ONN focus on key issues that affect people working in the sector. We focus on Decent Work and job quality issues, for example. Job quality issues affect many of the sector’s one million employees, including salaries and overtime pay; low levels of pension plan and benefits coverage; high-rates of part-time and contract employment; underinvestment in training and development; and poor work-life balance.

There is a need to improve working conditions for all – in the nonprofit sector and beyond. The decent work movement presents an opportunity for our sector to act as a champion of good working conditions through organizational practices and funding reform.

To attract and retain the best people, Ontario’s nonprofit sector must position itself as a “sector of choice” for good career opportunities. Ontario’s nonprofit sector would be strengthened by better labour market information and coordinated labour force planning, including leadership development; diversity, equity & inclusion initiatives; intentional career paths; and succession planning.

ONN also supports practical efforts to reduce barriers to employment and volunteering, such as creating a fair and streamlined process for police record checks.
