In response to COVID-19, the federal and provincial governments are offering and continuing to announce new financial supports to address the impacts on the economy. This webinar outlines support programs available to eligible not-for-profits in BC and is aimed to provide easy-to-understand, updated summaries of each support.

There is nothing like a global pandemic to disrupt routine. In this 2-hour virtual workshop you will discover tools and strategies to guide your short-term planning.


    While the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the normal operations for many not-for-profits, the Board of Directors is still responsible for ensuring effective organizational governance. In this one-hour webinar, you'll come away with an understanding of the three types of questions your board should be asking and how to apply your governance responsibilities in our current situation.

    Subject: Make the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy Immediately Available to All Charities and Community Not-for-Profits

    I am writing this on behalf of Vantage Point, a BC-based charity which works to support other not-for-profits throughout the province. We request the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy be made immediately available to all charities and not-for-profits, rather than requiring not-for-profits prove a 30% revenue loss to be eligible.

    In BC, as in the rest of Canada, charitable and not-for-profit organizations are currently seeing an increased demand for their services, increased operating costs, and have lost major sources of revenue. We employ over 86,000 people across the province. We also contribute up to $6.69 billion in programs and services per year. Beyond the essential services and support we provide for our most vulnerable, our sector is also a critical engine of economic prosperity and jobs.

    The Leadership Principles series is a unique professional development offering for not-for-profit leaders seeking to enhance their current leadership approach.
