PolicyWise created this dashboard to show the impact of the non-profit sector across Canada. It uses data from Statistics Canada.

  • Sector Snapshot displays a summary of overall findings about the sector.
  • Sector Over Time displays economic and workforce data from the previous five years.
  • Nonprofit Types displays a comparison of impacts for three types of nonprofits, including their source of funding.
  • Nonprofit Subsectors displays economic, workforce, and volunteer impacts across different subsectors like social services and health.
  • Rural/Urban Nonprofits displays how impacts are distributed in rural and urban settings.

Choose the geography, type of non-profit, and year that you are interested in. Hover over the ‘?’ that appears beside each of the dashboard concepts to learn more. Use the +/- bar and the ‘Open in a new window’ buttons at the bottom to modify size.
