- Do you want to have an impact in your local community, on a provincial or national level, or internationally?
- Is there a type of non-profit you’re interested in – the environment, healthcare, education, arts, social services, or religion?
- What sort of impact or work are you interested in – for instance, if you are interested in healthcare, you may be interested in health and medical research, or direct service provision and support, or perhaps in lobbying efforts to change healthcare policy.

and find the right charities for you.
