Guest contributor, Beth Clarke, a Director at the Toronto Region Immigrant Employment Council (TRIEC), explores the subject of diversity in the nonprofit workforce and why it's a value that cannot be overlooked in Canada today.

"While growth in revenue to charities will slow, demand for the services charities provide will continue to increase and even accelerate. The need for these services is driven as much by demographics as it is economics. The population will continue to age, continue to become more diverse and accelerate demands for the sort of social services charities specialize in regardless of the robustness or weakness of economic activity..."
Odd weather patterns generated by El Nino. Turmoil in the Chinese stock market. The virtual collapse of OPEC and the melt down in oil prices. The world has been an unsettled place at the beginning of 2016.

"Corporate philanthropy has emerged in recent decades as a powerful marketing tool for many of Canada’s biggest consumer-facing brands. According to Bruce McDonald, CEO of Imagine Canada—an organization that monitors charity activity—corporate Canada began staffing community investment departments in the mid-’90s and aligning philanthropy with strategic and business goals."

In this post we highlight research on youth giving trends and talk with Holly McLellan, International Director of Programming at the Youth and Philanthropy Initiative (YPI), an organization that engages young people in conversations about philanthropy and the important contributions charities make.
Where are the giving role models? It’s a question that has emerged through Imagine Canada’s Personal Philanthropy Project, an initiative researching the giving habits and motivations of affluent Canadians.

Imagine Canada spoke with four sector leaders about their involvement in supporting Syrian refugees and asked how our sector can continue to support this work into the future.
