Community Conversation: Story of the Nonprofit Sector

The charitable and nonprofit sector has a remarkable story to tell.

In addition to contributing to the fabric of society, we are a significant economic force and our organizations have played a pivotal role in building and defining our nation. Yet we have not always been successful in sharing this story with Canadians.

Imagine Canada is working with a broad cross section of organizations to create a new narrative about the role and contributions of the sector as a whole. We see the creation of this new narrative - a broader understanding of the sector and its impact - as the foundation of everything that we need to do. 

Join Stephen Faul from Imagine Canada as he discusses the next steps in Imagine Canada’s National Engagement Strategy, with a broad cross section of organizations creating a new narrative about roles and contributions, and about the legitimacy and trustworthiness of the sector as a whole.

The narrative will be foundational – consistent messaging that is relevant and adaptable to all our subsectors. 

Target Audience: Anyone working or volunteering in the nonprofit sector, especially those interested in shifting Canadians understanding of the sector
