2022 The Giving Report
The State of The Charitable Sector
Charities Are Critical to Canadian Society
Charities are a key part of Canada’s social safety net, providing food, shelter, and life-saving aid when existing programs fall short. Charities also improve the quality of life for all Canadians through youth programs, arts and cultural festivals, protecting our parks and wildlife, supporting senior citizens, providing mental health crisis counselling, and so much more.
While projections estimate that overall giving has declined for at least the last two years, many charities have faced a drastic increase in demand. Explore challenges and insights facing Canada’s charitable sector by downloading The Giving Report 2022.
