A big thanks to Susan Dafoe, Account Manager at Charity Village who spoke about the realities of the non-profit sector with Loyalist PR students yesterday.
Susan brought many amazing things to our attention, including that:
- Canada's non-profit sector is the second-largest in the world (the first is the UK)
- the non-profit sector accounts for 21% of the Canadian workforce (that's 2 million workers)
- 1/3 of the jobs in today's non-profit sector
