Standards Program (Imagine Canada)

To build excellence within Canada’s charities and nonprofits through common standards of practice and to strengthen confidence in the sector.

The goal of the Standards Program is to help Canadian charities and nonprofits improve their practices in five foundational areas: board governance, financial accountability & transparency, fundraising, staff management, and volunteer involvement.

Incorporated as a nonprofit from 2005 to 2013, the HR Council for the Nonprofit Sector (HR Council) took action on nonprofit labour force issues. As a catalyst, the HR Council sparked awareness and action on labour force issues. As a convenor, it brought together people, information and ideas in the spirit of collaborative action. As a research instigator it built knowledge and improved the sectors understanding of the nonprofit labour force.

London Community Foundation

London Community Foundation is a charitable organization dedicated to improving communities across London and Middlesex County. We do this by pooling the charitable gifts of donors to create endowment funds and using the investment income to make grants. London Community Foundation also provides leadership — monitoring this area's quality of life and convening people, ideas, and resources to help build stronger and more resilient communities. 

The Ontario Nonprofit Network

Organized in 2007, the Ontario Nonprofit Network (ONN) is the convening network for the approximately 55,000 nonprofit organizations across Ontario. As a 7,000-strong provincial network, with a volunteer base of 300 sector leaders, ONN brings the diverse voices of the sector to government, funders and the business sector to create and influence systemic change. ONN activates its volunteer base and the network to develop and analyze policy, and work on strategic issues through its working groups, engagement of nonprofits and charities and government.

Imagine Canada

Imagine Canada exists to work alongside other charitable sector organizations  — and often in partnership with the private sector, governments and individuals in the community — to ensure that charities continue to play a pivotal role in building, enriching and defining our nation.
