Take Action

“Most Canadians have likely engaged with a charity or nonprofit at some point in their lives. Charities play an essential role in communities across Canada. Great outcomes are achieved when charities and governments work together – examples include drunk driving legislation and smoke-free workplaces.”

A Day of Recognition!

Why do we need a day of recognition?

Frontline Champions are the employees who help people through some of the direst of circumstances to create experiences that spark joy and happiness. There are 2.4 million people who work in Canada’s nonprofit sector. Most, if not all of us, know someone who has benefited from their work.

It’s time for a National Day of Recognition!

The National Organizations that are advocating for the National Day include the following organizations: Imagine Canada, Community Foundations of Canada, United Way Centraide Canada, The Philanthropic Foundations of Canada, Volunteer Canada and the Bhayana Family Foundation.

 

The CEO of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce has endorsed this advocacy. We have also gained support from other organizations including TD Bank Capacity Canada Definity Insurance Foundation, Inspirit Foundation, Laidlaw Foundation and YWCA amongst many others.
